Oh hello friends! Did you think I’d forgotten about you? Not quite! Let me tell you, getting SCUBA certified from 7pm-11:30pm for 3 nights in a row puts a real cramp in one’s style. (source)
I learned a few things last night during our first night of instruction, that’s for sure.
- If I’m going to stay awake for a classroom and pool session that lasts that late I need a Starbucks date around 6pm.
- I really, really love my 1 piece swimsuit and am so glad I had it last night. The girls in bikinis were miserable while we treaded water for 10 minutes or tried to get in and out of wetsuits.
- I’m proud of myself for finally getting certified after 5 resort dives over the past few years of vacations.
Before I embarked on my scuba adventure, I enjoyed my 2nd smoothie in two days. I made it at work right before I left and was immediately transported to the Cozumel or Bermuda beaches where I enjoyed pina coladas on a daily basis last year. This smoothie doesn’t have nearly the amount of sugar or alcohol that those cocktails do but it is refreshing, protein filled and perfect treat!
