Re: My Diving Accident End of June

Before Merry retired, we used to collect sea water and look at in under the microscopes at her lab. There are so many animals and silica particles that I often wondered if it would be better to spit in my mask and not rinse it.

Merry and I fell in love with the area and have signed ...
