Here we go

I`m diving

Howdy do

Coral Pinnicle

The dreaded mask removal

Mr. Tom..always waiting for me

Out of order...This is the decent into the abyss

Well we just spent the last two days diving with a private instructor. Well really I did the diving with the instructor and Tom was out for the `fun dive`. His name is Russ from England. He was excellent. The first two dives were fairly shallow, about 30ft. Amazing sea life. Did a few of the req`d skills that I do not like ( mask flood and clear ). The second day we took off for our last two dives. The first was over 60ft. It was a bit scary at first knowing that you are so far down and cannot just quickly surface if you panic. So don`t panic! Easier for some than others.

It was very cool the things we saw. The last two dives there was a underwater video photograher. He filmed the dives. The fourth dive I had to preform the skill I dread the most and that`s mask removal. I made sure that Russ had a tight grip on me.....but I did it. SO....I AM NOW a PADI certified open water diver. Yahoo!

Today is our last day on Koh Tao, we are back to Samui tomorrow.

Stay tuned,

Monica & Tom ( Having a great time)
