Holy crap I can breath underwater?!

Post by Sockmonkey » Tue Nov 01, 2011 2:31 pm

It'd been too long.... months... maybe 6 or 7 since I dove last? The only thing that could motivate me to get my ass back in the water is a honest to goodness dive buddy. Once my regular buddy moved away and life in general intervened, I lost the motivation to make any effort to dive with anyone I might spent time worrying about. So where else would a proper diver be imported from? Seattle of course.

I met up with recent transplant Lologrande this morning at Paniau for the usual tour. What a relief to dive with a real diver! Many thanks to Bob for the introduction.

Who knows... maybe I'll start writing dive reports again...

Congratulations on the acquisition of a buddy. I always look forward to reading your reports :)

So I did move to Bali but my lovely wife and I did not really like it. It is an awesome spot for a vacation but not ideal for long term living. At least for us. Hello Hawaii! So far so good. It was especially nice to dive with a like minded diver again. Thank you Eric :supz: Vacation divers scare me.
I can't wait to get out and really explore the waters here. Nudge nudge Mr. Monkey.
