Guess what came in the mail today? My official PADI open water scuba diver certification card!
Speaking of scuba, I got a wonderful present in my email inbox the other day. My friend Skylar, who I met through the scuba class, sent along a ton of photos and videos from our last dive in Catalina. He and his girlfriend, Alli, used Alli’s underwater camera to capture all sorts of cool things. Here’s a few of my favorite pics:
Here I am prepping my mask before we descended underwater. That round building is the Catalina Casino.
Underwater action shot! That’s me checking out a rocky ledge, looking for eels or an octopus or another creature that might live in these parts. I didn’t find anything.
Up close and personal with some fishies. I’m not sure what these are, but they were everywhere, and didn’t seem to mind us swimming through their waters.
This might be my favorite photo of the bunch, showing the kelp forests that are abundant in Catalina waters. They grow in tight columns, reaching for the surface, and it was great fun to wind your way through them. I’m pretty sure that’s Alli in the photo.
