About a half a year ago I got divorced after 6 years of marriage, had some issues with alcohol, tabacco and MJ and obviously touched the bottom a little, but my friend pulled me out somehow and now we dive.
1st open water dive - the spot is right near our dive center, bad weather, visibility, like, 1.5 m or so, cold and uncomfortable as fuck in this borrowed wetsuit, the mask leaks, feels like wtf I never gonna do it again.
2nd open water dive - same spot, but the weather is nice, visibility is much better, I brought my new mask and a drysuit and this time it was quite fun. Did the second dive that day after I refilled my 15L steel tank.
3rd open water dive - we flip backwards from the boat like in the movies, descending to the stone steps some 18 m below. Pure awesomeness. Lots of fish, stars and hedgehogs, great view, sunrays through the water and shit. That was better than sex.
4th dive - I saw SEALS! And even filmed them!
So far, may every next dive was way better than previous.
Also, check out my new drygloves, arrived just yesterday.
