Being surrounded on all sides by the most clear, brilliant blue ocean that just happens to be inhabited by all manner of marine life, it wasn’t so much a decision to immediately commence exploring the water around us, as a logical statement. We live in Hawaii. Therefore we must snorkel, swim, scubadive, surf, paddleboard, fish, boat… you get the idea.
Just this past weekend, I finished up my scuba certification so I’m now officially a certified open water diver. So far it has been a lot of fun! There are 4 required open water dives for the qualification, so we went out to Electric Beach and got to swim around the coral and poke things between skills tests. The underwater world is unbelievable! It’s so pretty and vibrant! I’d take pictures, but water isn’t very conducive to the proper function of digital cameras.
I also finished up an audition for the University of Hawaii music program… We’ll see how that turns out.
Anyways, that’s what I’ve been up too! Has anybody else done scuba-diving or snorkeling in the tropics???
