Life underwater

By 6:29 AM

It's almost the new weekend and I havent told you about the last one yet. I can't say that starting a brnad new blog was a bad thing, it takes a ton of the pressure away from writing. The funny thing is, I hardly ever just sit here and write and that is going to be half my job in  a couple weeks. I will be teaching writing and social studies.  I hope that a few of the pieces I do in class will make it over on this little space. 

Anywho, last sunday the boyfriend (Gah, I hate that word) and I went diving in a new spot off the island. The water was only 4 feet deep and it came in handy bc our mask kept fogging up so we would have to pop our heads out of the water to clear them. I'm not a fan of doing that underwater. 

We swam with millions of bait fish!

Cuddle fish and squid, 

...and I finally got to see the giant sea stars that I hear all about. There were actually two, but this was the better looking one. 

Sunday was the first time I've gone diving with a hawaaiin sling. It's sort of a trident (or frog gig) with a rubber band attached to the end so that you can spear fish. Unfortunately there werent any fish to eat that day but I'm hopeful it will be my turn to bring home dinner one day.
