Yes! I did it! Harry took me scuba diving at Lau Lau on September 8. Here I am swimming with the fish. Yes, I know, I don't look like a "good" diver because my arms are out. But it's been so long since I went diving, that I kept reaching out to the fish (not touching them) in fascination that they would swim right up to my mask and hang out near me. Yes, I was just enjoying the sheer wonder of weightlessness and swimming with fish. Harry kept the dive easy for me, so we only went to about 60 feet.
I got to see this baby lion fish. So cute. It was only about 3 or 4 inches long. Harry was hoping I would see a turtle, but there weren't any around that morning. I'll probably have another chance to see a turtle, as I'm sure I'll be diving again. I won't wait so long this time. Since I'm not in the greatest shape, hauling the gear is still hard for me, but it's great once I'm in the water, of course. So I won't ever be the regular diver that Harry is, but I'll still get in the water now and then. This was a fun accomplishment for me, so I'm really happy that Harry took me along.
September 8 is a memorable day for me, as it is also my son's birthday. Happy 24th Josh!
