A Travellerspoint blog

and a week and a half left before flight.....

time continues to tick away as my departure moves closer and closer. I have begun my re-certification course for the scuba. The first lessons in the pool were chilling to say the least....came out feeling like a popsicle. Over the next day, developed a hugely nasty sinus cold.....so now what? well, buy a wet suit of course! the next lessons with the wetsuit, oh so much more comfortable. And an opportunity to remember what the pleasures of diving are all about. I have absolutely no anxiety of the various safety or precautionary skills that we practice, not like I remember them when I did it 30 years ago, I recall I was much more apprehensive back then. It was really an view back into my world of 30 years ago. A pretty cool feeling actually. But my mortality and responsiblity to the kids was another changed perspective (30 years adds A LOT of perspective), and the "real" danger of this sport......certainly emphasizes the need to be mindful at all times.

Otherwise I am pretty much ready to get on my way. Have a couple of things still to do but mostly, just grab my stuff and go. I am still wondering what I might do after all my currently planned stops, and have been thinking about Rainbow Beach, and Fraser Island. I'll look into that a little more and see from there.......
