A big Thanks to all who made the trip and another to GentDiver for taking the lead on navigation. :cool1:
The diving was great and the company even better..even if it did get quiet when someone was eating.. :unsure:
It seemed to go by so quickly as most do, but the memories will last forever.
Hope we can all do it again soon...

and WHO might you be referring too my pretty??????? :usflag:

I miss you all already. As a new participant, I was impressed at the experience of the entire group. Quite a group of seasoned divers! I was also impressed with the Comradery of the group. I took two books and bought a new ipod, loaded with music, and I rarely used them. You all kept me entertained. I am still smiling.

The energy of the group to dive and the love of diving also impressed me. When previous Live Aboard groups would start to fade, this group was still suiting up for the infamous conch horn. I was really impressed!

You all made me laugh more than I have for years. Thanks for making me feel welcome. I hope the Belevolent rulers can back up the clocks, I would love to start all over.

P.S. I can still see Sea Ranger's eyes after the charging shark. Never been bigger! :wakawaka:

Now Eric….I thought you would be the last one to make fun of our close encounter with an angry shark! Now maybe it’s because you were beside me and “Bruce” the shark was at a high speed run towards me. Now I know the others had a good laugh at my expense but I don’t think they appreciate how close I came to being rammed. I have to thank my “hammerhead horn” as the shark veered off immediately with inches to spare when I hit the button. After experiencing how quickly a seemingly docile shark can turn aggressive, (like seconds) I have new respect for these unpredictable creatures.

I have, in my Benevolence, tried to turn the clock back..but I haven't been able to...it appears to be something to do with the Bermuda Triangle; my commands keep bouncing back like a bad email address :taz:

Everyone at work has been very impressed by the photos I have on my laptop and I turned them into a rotating screen saver

So the whole trip, I never did get to see the whole Madagascar movie... so last night, on my flight home from Minneapolis I put it in and watched half of it (yeah I still haven't seen the whole thing, but atleast I have it now) all I can say is, I thought of Sandy and Dan laughing their butts off, and then I thought of kim, and my drink almost came out of my nose as the Zebra walked into the train station and said, "Grand Central Station.... its Grand.... and.... its Central" and for some reason I just have the image of Kim sitting on the couch watching the movie and in a wierd kind of voice saying, "It's grand..... AND..... its CENTRAL..." "Wierd some of the obscure stuff we recall... but it made me laugh
Roatan!!!! Roatan!!!! Roatan!!!! I'm going to ROATAN!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!

Unfortunately not.. I had a hard enough time hanging on with all the bubbles getting trapped in my gear and making me rise to the surface. Bubbles tickle too.
