Certified or Certifiable? (MIMM)

I did it!  I am officially able to dive open water!  I am a scuba diver.  🙂  It took me a weeks worth of water logged learning but once all was said and done I have my certification and 4 open water dives under my belt.

Now, HB thinks I’m just certifiable.  He doesn’t quite get why a person would want to strap weights onto themselves and dive under the water.  Especially water that is many, many feet deeper than one is tall.  He has a hard time grasping the concept of leaving perfectly good land to go under the water.  He’s more of a land lubber.  Golf is more his thing.

Now to get some good gear and a few buddies to hit the good dive spots.   Also a camera.  I saw some cool fish down there that I would love to photograph.  A sea snake too.  No turtles or sharks…yet.  There were some sightings by other divers the day before we went out though so they are in the area.

So, it’s been a few days (ok, closer to a week) since I have posted.  So here are a few photos that I have taken over the last few days.

This beautiful blooming palm is down the road from our house.  It has been growing rapidly the last few weeks.

These beautiful flowers have been blooming all around the island.  I’m not sure what they are called but they sure are pretty.

I admit I bought this wine for the bottle.  The butterflies are so cute.  The wine wasn’t half bad.

Curry!  Homemade curry.  I have been all about some yummy curry.  Thick, rich, full of flavor, and oh so yummy on the tummy!  This was some chicken, pineapple, sweet potato curry I made last night.  Not sure I’ll add sweet potato again but the chicken and pineapple is a delicious combo!

Oh yeah, it’s already Monday!  And I’ve had some much marvelous this last week.  Diving, curry, wine and time with friends/family.  What more could a girl ask for?  Oh, a good run.  Today was my first in about a week but it was nice to hit some pavement again.  My legs may be telling me different tomorrow.  When was the last time you got in a good sweat{pink} session?
