Diving, But No Pictures [May. 7th, 2016|08:57 pm]

I said I would be filming my diving adventures on my birthday getaway last month, but when I got onto the boat, I discovered my camera hadn't charged. Here is what I posted to facebook from the resort:

April 15th. The sun is out! And I just went snorkeling and saw a tiny, color changing cuttlefish.

April 16th. Day 6 of leave. I saw a stingray. A big one, the size of a table, just a meter or two away. It swam away from us, then toward us, then away, then toward us again. Also three cuttlefish swimming together like they were family. And a scorpion fish, huge puffer fish, and the fish with a seahorse face that isn't a seahorse, just so many other fish. But the Go Pro was dead, even though I plugged it in last night.

So, sadly, I don't have a video of my partner singing "Happy Birthday To You" in its entirety, underwater. We did two dives, and the visibility was much better than Valentine's Day (my previous entry). You'll just have to imagine it.

Here's a picture of the resort, though, after the sun came out. Until late in the afternoon, it was a dark and rainy day.

And here's me! On this day, I turned 38.

This was the boat that took us to our two dive sites.

My GoPro batteries don't hold a charge for longer than a day or two. It's a little maddening.

I think I plugged it into a bad wall outlet in the hotel. :(

I think you've made a good "catch" with your guy. I'm laughing to myself, imagining him singing underwater to you. Thanks for sharing the joy!

I see your pun was intended. ;-) He told his friends he caught a mermaid. I was like, "that mermaid let you catch her..."

The big 40 is creeping up on you!

The crazy thing is, in all of your photos, you look like you're still in your mid 20s.

I mean, I *know* you made a deal with all sorts of demons and spirits, but still... :)

Re: THIRTY EIGHT!?!?!?!?

Now, I want LJ to have Karma voting. I mean, it's been a feature request for a decade. Sheesh! Why can I not click a +1 or like or updoot, or whatever!?!?
