Note: I know the title makes no sense to anyone but me, especially when I've been listening to Sky Sailing's Brielle the whole night (which is an achingly beautiful song)...
Today I feel like sharing a small glimpse of what my underwater world looks like!
I should really start saving for my own underwater camera. The camera I'm using at work is a Canon G10 with underwater casing, though my skills aren't up to par yet with say, experienced underwater photogs.
I'm really enjoying the challenge of having a truly capable volunteer from South Africa, who's a dive instructor and resort manager (she has 10 years on me). She makes me push myself to do things I never thought I could do and improve myself. Can't get too comfortable. Like my uncle Asgari used to day, I should challenge myself while I'm still young! You will never know what you can achieve if you don't! ;-)
P/S: Sometimes it's grand to be surrounded by people who actually understand what you're doing and are well-versed enough in marine biology/aquaculture to ask good questions. These people tax my brain the most but keep 'em coming I say!
A big shoutout to Jason Ho who will be doing his Open Water scuba license this weekend!! Keep praying you'll see a whale shark! (I doubt he'll read this but it's fun anyway!)
