Yesterday I finally completed my PADI open water diver course. It had taken my 2 months, and needless to say I was frustrated that it took so long. I was abandoned by my original instructor, not that she wasn’t the best, but a word of advice, never date your instructor!!!!!

But as luck has it, I came across a little shop in Kings Mountain, NC. Aquatic Pleasures Dive Center. I just want to say thank you to Teresa, and Calvin Shaw, and the entire staff at AP. They took me in and have treated me as family ever since. I found them at the worst time though, two big dive trips planned and it just stretched out the time line something terrible.

But that’s all behind me now, next weekend I do my Advanced OW, and in 3 weeks, a weekend of wreck diving on the NC coast. I also won a trip, in my dive clubs treasure hunt my very first day, another weekend of diving off Carolina Beach, NC. Life is good!
