Padi Open Water Diver

Well, I'm a diver! I completed the Padi Open Water diver's course today and will pick up my certificate tomorrow. I'm under no illusions as to my diving ability as it is a very basic level but it's still nice to have done it. I wasn't able to take the camera on the training dives as I had too much else to concentrate on but LB went snorkelling while I was stuck in the classroom doing my final exam. He took some nice fishy photos. The stripey one is a tiger cardinal and the spotty one is a white spotted puffer fish, they're the ones that puff up into a ball when scared .

Please will you stop doing this to me?
There are three things I have always wanted to do:
1) ride a motorbike (accomplished)
2) learn to dive ( well actually I wanted to be Jacques Cousteau but that's another story)
3) learn to sail
So if I see pictures of you in a 40 foot yacht ( or even a mirror dinghy) I will cry!

Enjoy the rest of your hols.

Many Congrats from both of us.
Good idea to do it in such a fabulous location.
Still number 2 to go for me but my scuba role model was Hans Hass.(that ages me)

Can LB get a pic of you in your SCUBA gear?

Don't worry P I remember Hans & Lottie Hass too. LB doesn't but then he's a year younger than me! Anne you're in the right place to learn to sail so no excuses. As for learning to dive, it's not that difficult. It takes 4-5 days although you can do it in two stages as I did. I don't fancy it at home though, too cold and not enough fish. Tropical reefs are definately the place to be!
