After getting back from Europe at the end of last year, ended up with a bit of a chest infection and was unable to dive for about 3 weeks! Got over that and all ok - THEN - Covid 19hits. Ughhhhh, shut down for almost 4 months. Not a great time but did manage to get back into reasonable shape, get a number of things done around the house and yard and let my equipment dry out! Only managed 161 dives this year but hey - they were all good!
Not many decent photos this past year and was not able to do my 2021 calendar! Due to travel restrictions, shipping then down here would have been very cost ineffective. Next year - I hope.
On a great note had the opportunity to meet with old friends and make many new ones through diving both here in Sosua with Divecenter Merlin and in Las Terrenas with The Dive Academy!
Paul, Audrey, Sonya, Juan, Andrea, Andreas, Michaela, Oly - just to name a few of the new people I have had the pleasure to meet and dive with this year. Looking forward to continue diving with you all in the future.
Looking forward to the world getting back to some resemblance of normal and travel restrictions easing. Thinking it may be a while but ready to explore new dive destinations and meeting new friends!
Take care, stay safe, stay positive have a great 2021
AND - May you stay, forver young!
