Yesterday Allisa and I went scuba diving at LETRA. It was my first experience with a very low visibility dive. You may ask what did you see? Well not a whole lot! Rocks and fish. It was still fun but it sure is not the ocean. Mostly what I saw was this color , this color, and this color. Not this color, this color and this color. Lake diving is a totally different than ocean diving. I have also discovered that fish stalk me! At one point there were 10 of them right behind my head. I think they were behind my head looking at my mask strap. It has a picture of the ocean and ocean fish. They were probably calling all the other fish to come look at the ocean. ;)
I was reading an article in a magazine about diving on the natural springs in Florida. But some of them have Alligators. That made me think. Would I rather dive with alligators and crocodiles or sharks. That is a toughie! I think I would choose sharks. When diving with sharks you are most vulnerable when you are at the surface. I would think, that that with the vicious reptiles you are always vulnerable. Yes with sharks you are too but sharks prefer dead or dying things. And seals are one of their favorite meals. At the surface you are a seal down below you are just another fish. To me the alligators and crocodiles are always on the hunt and would be more likely to take you down in the water. Which would you rather be in the water with?

I forgot to tell you about my injuries! Pulling on my wet suit is hard! It always makes my ingers hurt. Yesterday in between the first and second dive I took the top part of my wet suit off. As I was putting it back in for the second dive I scraped off the skin on the top of my middle finger. And my ring finger has a blister on it. And I smashed my pinkie in my tank clamp. I always hurt my fingers when I dive!
