To celebrate our 32 anniversary we went scuba diving, an activity that we enjoyed when we were first married but which we did not pursue in colder northwest waters. We began with a refresher course with Claire in the Las Hadas pool. The next day we went with the Ocean Whisper, Manuel to Bahia Carrezales. The sea life was abundant and we soon recaptured the art of gliding weightlessly through the coral.
Claire and Manuel, our instructors. Claire is from England and conducted our pool refresher course. Manuel, an aspiring underwater photographer, has unbridled enthusiasm for the ocean. We dubbed him the Ocean Whisperer.
Eric and Eulalie, on their honeymoon diving trip to the Cayman Islands. They dove together two years later in Cozumel, but had not been diving together in over thirty years.
Eulalie on dive boat. Manuel told her she dove like a mermaid.
Eric on the dive boat. Manuel called him Trident.
Needless to say we gave Manuel a big tip (flattery will get you everywhere, or at least a big tip).
