I'm Baaaack! Damn It!


Whooooeeee! What a week! I lit the candle at both ends and a few places in the middle.

The final count for our group (TCBA) was 146 including spouses and significant others. It's tough NOT to have fun with a group like that. I would also recommend Carnival Cruises (we were on the Imagination) for their food, staff and everything else, it was all top-notch and FUN.

For any of you divers, I did a 2 tank at Grand Cayman. Dove Round Rock on the West Wall and the Ocho Verde. Round Rock was the best by far. You swim over the edge of the reef and the bottom drops to over 3,000 ft. Awesome!

On to Jamaica mon! Spent half a day in the rain forest and went on to climb Dunn's River Falls, pretty cool. I never did find out how high the thing actually is, some said 950 ft. others said 600, who cares? Climbing a waterfall is a riot.

I'll be working on getting the pics up next week if anyone's interested in seeing how a bunch of old dudes party when nobody's looking. Our dive cameras are film and we have to get it exposed and then on disk to swap those. None of thought to ask for digital for Christmas, damned grey matter! LOL

Sounds like a great time! The wife and I are divers and are looking to go somewhere on vacation this winter for a couple weeks. I would love to see pics when you get them up. How was the water clarity?

Vis was as close to unlimited as you can get, it's hard to gauge accurately.

Flor, 'she' hung out on a beach, snorkled and drank Red Stripes with some of her best friends, went shopping and did other 'girl stuff' while we were diving Grand Cayman. We were together the whole time in Jamaica and leading the pack in the falls climb. If there are any 'condolences', it is due to the fact that she is claustrophobic and has a difficult time wearing a mask. She is now determined to overcome this AND get a dive card. This is win-win for everybody!

Also in the 'condolences' column, you may want to ask her about the
SA emeralds, tax free if unset. All that I bought was alcohol, T-shirts and a few souvinier glasses.
