In the next picture I'm getting hugs from both dogs. I can't remember the girl dog's name, but she was quite friendly, too, especially if she was competing with Brady. She made me laugh because she goes to the neighbor's yard and takes avocados from the ground and brings them home to eat on her front lawn. Too funny.
Isn't this pool just beautiful? It was so refreshing after our dive, to soak in the pool a bit before getting something to eat from the wonderful assortment of dishes that everyone brought.
Here's Harry chatting with Jason, and enjoying some great food. There were so many vegetarian dishes, that I thought I woke up somewhere else. I had so many choices, it was hard to pick. That was a real switch from the "normal" potluck gathering out here.

I really enjoy seeing these little guys just playing in the anemone or the little swarms eating around the coral. As we were swimming along, Harry stopped me to show me this guy. It's a scorpion fish. I let him take the photo. I never would have seen him on my own. He just mixed in with everything around him.
This was my one attempt at a macro shot on this dive. I was pretty happy with it, but it's not as clear as it could be. I should have gotten a little closer I think.
Here's Harry - looking for his next photo op.
I had to take pictures of these guys. I have a matching swimsuit! Here is one of my most common views - and one of my favorites! Love this guy.

You can see our new uniforms in this picture. Light blue tops with gray jackets and skirts. I don't think the guys have jackets. I'm not a real polyester fan, but these are better than the ones ordered in previous years.
Today is April 4. On this day many many years ago, Harry and I started dating. Yep, way back in High School. We have shared so much history - love, laughter, tears, parenting, friendship. We supported each other through hard times, and each of us losing a parent. We have spent our last 12 years here on Saipan, working and raising our children. The kids are grown now, each pursuing their own lives, but still sharing themselves with us as much as possible. During our last trip to Bali, I had alot of time to reflect on our history together. I am thankful that God brought us together. I am thankful for the man that Harry is and for all of the years we've shared life together. I'm thankful for Josh and Sarah, whose lives God blessed us both with. They are wonderful people. So today, April 4, I am thankful that my journey of life has been shared with Harry. And I look forward to all our future holds together.
Here is an old picture of us, when Josh was only about 6 months old, I think. What's that expression? "We've come a long way, baby!"
