What lies beneath - scuba diving certified!!

 I've had "getting scuba certified" on my list for quite sometime now. Going to Hawaii, Egypt, and the Galapagos Island and being "stuck" snorkeling was not ideal. That said you can actually die underwater if you don't learn your skills properly. There is no stopping to breath for sometime underwater. Therefore, I wanted to get certified in the US/Puget Sound where the standards and moral ethics are high. Besides if I can deal with cold water diving, tropical diving is a breeze. Also, you can't fly for approximately 18 hours after diving so trying to get certified during a vacation is a waste of time. So this was the week that I carved out time to get certified - and certified I got!!

Thur - 6 miles: Slow and measured in the dark

Fri - The pool portion of the scuba diving certification

Sat - 
AM: Open water dive following by skills test dive
PM, 8 miles:  : My first run as an official Belltown resident! A beautiful sunset followed by a full moon

Sun -
AM:  Dive to 60m to see an octopus den, a second navigation dive - scuba certified. Now for some tropical dive trips!
PM, 6 miles: 4pm, a fast-ish run in yet another nice fall day.

Total = 20 miles + 4 dives + Scuba certified

A certificate for scuba diving is your license to navigate and investigate the big and wide world under the sea. It's a thrillseeker's power badge!
