I'm scared of water and yet I found myself very curious about scuba diving. Mag has been trying to get me to try it for years and I have always flatly refused. However this time, tempted by the crystal clear Caribbean waters, I found myself saying yes.
I was terrified as I squeazed my face into my mask and somewhat confused by how to put the snorkel in my mouth and how on earth that plastic tube was supposed to help me breath. But eventually I got the hang of it.
We saw very little during our snorkeling excursion as the visibility was bad, however when we went back to the beach we hired masks there and snorkeled around a coral reef just a little way out from the beach. It was so beautiful, with fish of all imaginable colours.
I'm very pleased that Mag managed to convince me, after many years, to try snorkeling.
I had a fantastic time. I also discovered that I am abnormally buoyant!
