When I first got into diving I had thoughts of warm tropical beaches and sunsets with pina coldas. Now I find myself craving water of any kind. I am convinced if I could get a decent surface interval I would diving rain puddles. This past weekend was an example of my reality vs what I thought it was going to be. The water was 61 degrees, how cold is this you ask.... ASS COLD. When you can`t feel you ass the water is ass cold. I was in a 7mm farmer john so while my core wasn`t too cold and I did have some 5mm booties on my face was another story. When was the last time you stuck your warm face into some ass cold water. Trust me it wakes you up. Here I was on a sunday morning at 8am getting into some ass cold water thinking.... good thing I skipped the coffee or I`d pee myself. The getting in part isn`t hard its when you remove you mask for the first time and get that splash of water that you realize you are wide awake now. The truth is I love it.... and even though I tease and rant about the ass cold water. Gary and I are diving it again in 14 days! I will have a thermos of coffee waiting for me though lol. Thanks to everyone who made my weekend of ass cold water so much fun and I can`t wait to dive with all again soon, especially my dive buddies.... Superman Brandon and Scuba Burke!!
