My baby girl just turned 29 and to celebrate her birthday she went diving off the coast of Catalina Island. She and her husband Mike earned their certification about a month ago after taking dive classes all summer. Many years ago I tried to get mine but found out I couldn’t clear my sinuses below 15 feet (big disappointment), so I stick to snorkeling now. I worry about her because so much could go wrong and it is impossible to turn the Mommy gene off, but I do understand why she does it. I’m even a little envious. Last year she swam with the dolphins and this year she was one, what will she come up with next year. It was her dream as a little girl to be a mermaid, I think it came true. She took an underwater camera with her and this is what she saw.
This is my baby girl……. recognize her. I wrote “Little Girl of Two” about her…….who knew? Wave hello to the nice folks ’80.
She was always fond of blowing bubbles. That tether rope doesn’t look too good. I’m going to have to talk to the Captain about that.
Add a little lemon and garlic and you have a good lunch.
OH NO! Bad fishy! If I’ve told you once I’ve told you a thousand times don’t. play. with. the. Moray. eel. Scary!
A wonderful birthday but now it is time to head to the surface before mom has a stroke.
Wave goodbye to the nice folks ’80. You too Mike.
She wants to learn to skydive next. I may not survive…..
