Swimmin' with the Fishes!

So, a couple of weekends ago, Will and I were fortunate enough to get away together for another weekend of diving. We traveled all the way to Jupiter (Florida, that is) which is where the gulf stream comes the closest to the US. So, it makes for some very nice (but deep) drift dives! Since I became an Advanced Open Water Diver, I've been anxious to experience those more demanding dives. The weather was beautiful, seas were calm and visibility was about as good as it gets for that location. We saw some really big grouper, turtles, rays, eels and tons of the tropical fish varities. Oh, did I mention that on our first dive, we kind of drifted into about a half-dozen or so reef sharks! They were so cool!

Here we are under water. Our friend Tom had his underwater camera and just happened to swim by. So, far be it from me to pass up a photo opportunity (even at 80 feet below sea level!)

Here we are after a long day of diving, enjoying a great seafood dinner(yes, really!) with our friends Tom, Veronica, Tanya, Jon and Maureen. I thought we got a group shot of everyone at our table, but I think it was taken with someone else's camera.

Anyway, if you're wondering where in the heck was James while we were enjoying our weekend together, my mom was nice enough to fly down for the weekend to watch him so we could "escape." Even though we left on Saturday morning and returned by bedtime on Sunday, it felt like we were gone forever and we missed the little guy so much! James had a great time being spoiled by Grandma and showing her all of his new tricks. Unfortunately, she was too busy chasing him around the house to take any pictures of them, so you guys are stuck with pics of Will and I! It was a very relaxing, enjoyable dive weekend and thanks to Grandma, we were able to enjoy ourselves knowing that our little sunshine was in good hands. Now, when can we start planning our next dive trip???? Mom, got any plans for late September???????
