From the earliest of your experiences, the people who taught you how to dive (Lou, Mad Dog), your first dive buddies (Ron, Rick), your students who have gone on to greater things (Linda), friends from around the globe that you dive with (Reinhold, Robert, Tracy, Micki, Johnny B., Mickey, Jay and Susan., Alex), people you work with (Jeffrey, Christian, Kai, David, Steve, Gil, Jose, Adrian), friends who have never met (Ron, Ron, Daryl), the people who you share your photos with and have helped you along the way (Andres, Adolfo, Leo, Carol) - all of you have had a lasting impression on me, and all of you are amazing people. I know I missed hundreds of people on here but hey, you get the idea.
The great thing is, it's not only about the diving. It's the dinners, the drinks, the fun, the conversation!
It's really cool to have the same people come back year after year to dive and it's like they never went away. We just pick up where we left off. On that note, social media is great! Being able to stay in touch with people over the ages who live miles away is truly incredible.
I recently had the opportunity to meet Jean-Michel Cousteau - INCREDIBLE. Super nice and down to earth gut. Thanks Pablo for the intro!
Thanks for reading this, and thanks for viewing my photos. I hope in some small way, it makes your world a better place.
Save our reefs, dive safely, smile!
