Well hello strangers. Wow, what a trip! It was sort of crazy at times, but we had a great time. The bald head is peeling already and while I burnt a little, it wasnít too bad. Mainly just a long weekend of fun in the sun and salt water.
We got down to Sarasota about 5 on Thursday and then went diving bright and early on Friday morning. Did 2 dives looking for megladon teeth and while we didnít find any teeth, I spent a few hours on a rocky boat and did find a prehistoric manatee bone. My little one is all excited since she loves manatee.
Did a shore dive on Saturday which is when I burned the head, while swimming out and just hanging out on the beach. Sunday was the only semi bad day since we didnít dive due to some issues with the car, but we did get to hang out on the beach and swim. Monday was a boat dive and my son and I had misplaced his C-card and so he couldnít go. He took it like a champ though so we found the card, then left to start home and stopped in Ginnie Springs and did some cavern diving on Tuesday morning then left for home. I need to clean out the camera tonight to get the pictures downloaded
I realized I must be doing something right with my son though. He would help load and unload gear. Helped clean everything we used at the beach, helped the family we were with carrying stuff to and from the beach making several trips. All the while the son of my friend would disappear when the work started. He would only make one trip getting stuff from the car. Basically didnít clean anything until the last day. So, I was proud of my boy. I think he made an impression on the family we were with. My son even got up early this morning to clean my gear since he knew I had to work today and while I was getting ready to go to work, he was out spraying everything off and cleaning my stuff for me. The boy makes me proud sometimes. Well, all the time really, but you get what I mean, sometimes he shines bright.
Only bad things was I regained a few pounds so I have to get back to work on that today. But it was an awesome trip and we had a great time. So back to logging today and eating right and cutting out the drinking again.
