With another successful group of students certified this week, today I enjoyed a couple fun dives with a great group of guys. Each week is different, a different group dynamic, but all my crews have been great this summer. Teaching this summer has been a challenge to say the least, but I have learned alot about myself, and what I am capable of. I also learned who my real friends are down here and who I can depend on in a pinch. I didn’t take very many photos this week, which I regret, but I did have the chance to photograph a water spout and take a few underwater shots. I have not been able to take a day off this week due to some circumstances and Sea Base staffing issues, but I will press on, I just won’t have time to do my laundry 😉
This is a shot I took for Katie last week. We were diving on a small inshore patch called aquarium the viz was good and we had a great day.
The weather at Sea Base has been amazing the last week or so, great viz for diving, not too windy but not dead either. So the diving has been great. Couldn’t ask for better weather.
My certification group this week is from a troop I had earlier this summer. They were expecting to have me and mike as their instructors. Mike unfortunately had to head home earlier this summer due to some other circumstances. I hope they have enjoyed themselves as much as the previous group from their troop. I have certainly enjoyed myself this week. Only a couple more weeks left in the keys and then home. I do miss my family dearly. So until the end I will enjoy diving to the fullest, and try not to take for granted the time I have left.
