I snapped this yesterday.. look at that water! It was amazing.
Of course, flat water means no breeze, so it was a bitch of a day to work out.. Luckily, I was video-taping (video-smartcarding?) the workout, but even that was exhausting. I stripped down to my sportsbra and shorts and jumped in the water.. and could've stayed there all day.
After the swim and breakfast and a million things to do, this cutie Chris and I went for a dive behind one of the condo buildings. It was his first time diving in Florida, so I was honored to be taking him. :) It was really nice.. strange day since we swam for over 7 minutes from the first reef and never got to the second (typically, it's 5 minutes, max). I finally felt bad about dragging him over sand for that long (and to be honest, was really weirded out), so just turned around and went back to the first reef. And wondered why I left it in the first place.
I saw staghorn coral.. which I had never seen before.. it was everywhere on our way back.
Funny how things exist in pockets like that; I didn't see one bit of it on our way out. Saw lots of hamlets; I don't usually see many of those. It's like that one dive Alli, Laura & I did a couple of months back when there were crabs everywhere. We always see crabs, but on this dive, I saw three times as many. Or like the one day when I saw goatfish everywhere, which I don't see that often on shore dives.
Blah blah, blah. Anyway, yeah, nice weekend so far.. and since Chris is renting his gear, we're going for another dive today (to get another use out of it) after I spend some quality time with the kids (cats).
