Many of us have dreams of flying. But where most people have turned to the skies, I prefer to do my flying underwater.
While the thought of flight and water may sound completely opposite, for those who have tried scuba diving, they know that they go perfectly hand-in-hand. The weightless freedom of diving is the closest we will ever get to soaring like the birds.
It’s been a while – about seven years – since I last put on my gear and slipped beneath the waves, but the feeling remains the same. The coolness of the ocean as it wraps around you, the gentle descent to the seabed, and the strange yet familiar critters waiting at the bottom.
It’s good to be back.
