Beautiful Weather! We are here, the party begins!

AND.... There are monkeys who will carry you gear for you!

Just not to the dive boat!

I am here, and much to my dismay Sparky WAS able to stow away in my luggage and enter Honduras by convincing the Customs people that he was a malformed parrot pining for the jungles.

Interesting side note is that while I was unable to pack away a pirate costume, Sparky has one with him for the contest Friday night. I do not have the heart to tell him that there is probably no category for the best monotreme in a pirate costume...that would be cruel.

Oh yes...there is some diving going on between the eating, drinking and other activities here.

And to think that this is the start of the third day here at 0530....

....what the heck am I doing at a keyboard then.....bye for now!

Debauchery? No one told me there would be debauchery on this trip. If I'd have known that I would have foregone the pain of the dentist and been diving... er, debauching... there with you

Well, for starters...

Sparky went over to the Wench's and Fingrabber's room for the first SD Happy Hour this week.

I haven't seen him since.

LA,
I didn't know you were on that trip, you're missing all the wonderful diving back home. Why, I heard today vis was three feet, I almost quit work early just to see it for myself. Hope your having a good time.

ARRR and after a looong wait here be the story (Can't sleep decided to write this up instead :fish: ).

It was a hard week chasing after the phatom boat at sea. Rumor had it this here boat had major booty for the taking! (On sunday one of our group put a pirate flag on his boat. Wench and I decided we HAD to get it by the end of the week). Finally after a week of hard work and fast sailing. (Diving, drinking, eating, and just have a good ole time) We sight the phantom boat. (Drift dive we surfaced by them). It was time for a battle. (It was time to get the flag!) Captian pulled up beside them cannons blazing. Grapling hooks pulled them towards us. We boarded the boat. Violence laid at foot. Many good pirates were lost that day. Aye yes this be the day I lost me hand. After hours of long battle we force ye captian to surrender and give us ye booty. (Skipper pulled up to the boat we grabbed our fins and mask, swam over, ripped the flag off the banster and was gone before their skipper could even get up.)

6 months later we run across ye landlubber's and slaughter ye with ye own swords we stole from ye that day (I took the flag to party, danced around with it, flaunted it, had a good ole time at the party)...

As I said pictures of everything from the plundering to the party will come. I hope we'll get some elobaration on this in the thread it was a great time!
