|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.

Today is our last day on Koh Tao, we are back to Samui tomorrow.
Monica & Tom ( Having a great time)
