I left my regulators with you on 28 Feb for servicing. I have left multiple phone messages and one email with over last 10 days to see if they are ready for pickup. No response. Please let me know what is going on. Are they ready? Have your hours changed? A reply to my email would be great.
Almost two years ago - a good friend of mine challenged me to add #scubadiving to my #bucketlist. Growing up in the era of #jaws with a dad who loved to scare the crap outta me - caused me to be petrified to swim in any body of water EXCEPT a pool. Even then I would often wonder if Jaws was in the deep end of the pool! 😂😂

I could swim and swim well (swim team) but #fear held me back. When I was diagnosed with a rare and essentially incurable #cancer in 2016 I decided to face my fears and anxieties head on. Life is way too short to be afraid to experience all that you can! I obtained my first PADI certification: #openwater in May of 2018. During that trip I saw my first #shark and surprising myself, headed towards it so I could see it better! I quickly found that #scuba is one of my many passions. I went on to obtain my #advanced, #underwater #photography, #rescue and Divers Alert Network #DEMP, #shipwreck, #deep, #naturalist, #fishID and even my #advanced #freediving #PADI as well as my #PFI #freediver certifications! All of this (along with the dives of course) allowed me to apply for and receive my #masterscuba certification! I’m VERY proud of this accomplishment for so many reasons! I’ve gone on #sharkdives - surrounded by 7 different species, #cavern diving in the #cenotes, and have met so many wonderful people! Next up will be #sidemount and #advancedwreck - because surprisingly caves and wrecks seem to be pretty awesome! All #photos are mine (with the exception of me freediving in which my friend captured me via my GoPro . #paditravels #natgeo #cancer #livelife #positivity #facefears ♥️🦓 - thank you to my #diveshop Nautilus Aquatics for getting me there (as well as Deepsea Freediving School and Dive Friends Bonaire)
Sometimes the best way to deal with anxiety and fear is to simply look them in the face.

The first scuba diver says to the second scuba diver, "What are your thoughts on diving?" The second scuba diver says, "Well, I guess it's descent as a hobby."

We think it's more than decent, but maybe we are a little biased. 😆 Wishing you a great week ahead.
