Scuba Trooper

So Melbourne got to enjoy a one off summer's day of 28 degrees! Chris and I picked a perfect date to go scuba diving! I ran on 2 hours sleep and he ran on half hour, and we left to go to Mornington on the beach side to catch some sun!

It was our first time diving without any instructors since we got certified! We hired equipment then set off to Mornington pier.

No divers were there at the time so we felt SUPER cool as everyone watched us jump into sea! There was some sailing thing going on too so there was quite a crowd. Chris belly flopped in because he forgot to look up when he jumped! It's quite a distance from the pier in and with all that heavy equipment you do lose your balance a bit!

We swam on the surface to the end of the pier then descended. There were many puffer fishes, angler fishes, plastic bags, lots of little neon fishies, starfishes, crabs.. it was way cooler than the other joint we dove at for our course.

We came out, had to kill some surface time so we got coffee, wedges and ice cream. Bailey came down after work to come watch us. Then we dove in again. This time we encountered some problems, Chris wasn't doing his breathing properly and he took too many weights off his weight belt so he was floating way too much and couldn't descend.
A cafe advertised their breakfasts and we couldn't stop laughing at this face

I kept having to come up, even though that's bad too to help him out. People thought he was drowning hahahahaha! We finally got down though, and only did a short dive as we wasted a lot of air. After the second dive, I bought another ice cream. Chris had to go boot to a birthday party.

Bailey and I enjoyed our ice creams then took a swim, it got really cold by 5pm though so we only got up to waist deep then hopped out.

We went back to his place and he cooked me pasta. I enjoyed a super duper long shower as I was encrusted in sea salt hahaha!

Sorry I haven't been blogging much. I'm stressed out to the max. I've been organising visa stuff, got a holiday trip next month to Thailand and hopefully Cambodia & Vietnam. But I have to organise all my stuff too because my house lease finishes while I'm over there. Then I have to road trip back to Brisbane then bounce to overseas again.
Oh went with Bailey to colour in one of his tattoos..

Please excuse any hiatuses!
P.S I resigned my jobs and my bosses were extremely sad. They said nothing for a solid 10 minutes and just stood there gawking at me and then one of them just mumbled, "I'll miss you."
My workmates gave me this.. hahaha

Deena, I think you will love Cambodia. I went there far too young to truly cherish it, but I will go back someday.

I expect blog posts and photos whenever possible :)
