Ok! I am back after a brief respite to the Bahamas. I know, it was really rough and mean of me to be gone for so long on the ole blog. I am back and rolling - so to say! (hee hee)
Anyone interested in our scuba trip and what we did? Well I will tell you anyway. We had a great time. We saw boats and planes that had been sunk for one reason or another (mostly to film movies - they say that most movies with underwater scenes have been filmed in the Bahamas.) On one of our dives we swam amongst the fish - our dive guide was on the boat feeding the fish - they were parrot fish and seargent majors. I think that was one of my favorite dives. We got to dive deep, I went 85 feet and Sb went 101 feet (shame on him). There was a wall (that is when the coral drops off from about 45 ft to 6500ft!) That was a little eerie but cool at the same time.
We also saw the fence that surrounds the area where Sean Connery's Bahamas house is! We also saw lots of rain - but we didn't mind it. We haven't seen rain or thunderstorms in ages! One night we even woke up to the loudest thunder ever - it shook our room. Not to mention that when you scuba it doesn't matter if it rains because you get wet anyway.
We went with a big group of about 65 people. Loved, loved, loved the people. Met some fantastic peeps! Wish I could've gotten to know them more.
I don't have too many pictures to post right now but will have tons in a week or two. The pictures here are the view from my poolside lounge chair and the hotel with stormy rain clouds behind it.
