Paradise-The shipwreck

Now, onto the diving....

we are serious divers....we love to dive and dive every chance we get! The Maldives have many great dive sites...unfortunately we could only dive close to our island, but it was plenty! We saw many things that I will tell you all about over the next few days.

This is a shipwreck that we dove on twice. The first time was at night and the second during the day. For those of you that are not divers, let me tell you... I love to dive at night. Once you get over the initial disorientation of not being in daylight, the dive is usually incredible! Different fish come out at night, while others sleep!

Taking pictures are difficult at any moment under the water (and sometimes above, too!), but they can be even more challenging at night. I actually did not take my camera on the night dive on the wreck so.... These fotos are of the day dive on this wreck. The wreck was sunk on purpose to provide a new home for fish and corals....and of course to entertain us :) I found it to be quite interesting in it's structure.
Can you see what looks like rain in this foto? It is a school of what I believe are sardines! Very cool!
Enjoy the dive!

I have snorkled a lot and in tropical locations, but never got up the nerve to scuba dive. It does look wonderful!

I would be too scared, so I'll just enjoy it vicariously through you.

Okay, you are so brave. I love snorkling, but that is the limit for me.

SOOOO cool. I wish I had the courage to do it. I'm asthmatic and for some reason I developed a phobia against doing it primarily for that reason. I know, it is silly right?

So good to be back. I'm sorry I missed your blog while I was in the hospital. I hope all is well with you & that everything worked out with your luggage. I'm sorry I couldn't help you! I felt bad.

I just think of the boat ride to get to see those kind of places...
And that where my real fears appear.

The dive was perfect!!!
