Then, the babies came.
Last Sunday, we dove for the first time in six years. To say that we were a bit rusty would be an understatement. Still, though, the dive master crazily took us along and we had an amazing time.
The boat took us a few miles offshore to a site called the Ewa Pinnacles and then to a tugboat where Navy Seals are trained. We saw beautiful lava formations and tons of amazing animals. And although we did not get a photo of it, we saw a humpback whale VERY NEAR our boat in between dives, which was incredible and a definite first for me.
|After the slightly frightening 80-foot descent down the rope, I was calmed by my first sight of wildlife: this sweet guy, resting on the bottom.|
|In true MK fashion, here's the typical crazed diving eye.|
|Looking up. I am so glad we did this!|
|MK, checking air, checking gauges, checking, checking, checking...|

|See the ray?|
We vow to dive again before 2018! We must. It is just too much fun.
