I was going to go - really, I was. I know, I say that every time that I nearly go diving, but then something comes up that stops me. Perhaps it is too cold, or the sea is too rough, or it is raining and I don't want to get wet. What, what do you mean, you don't want to get wet!?! You are going diving, for goodness sake! Get a grip! Last time I went, I got there and the visibility was reported to be less than 5ft. Well, the whole point of me going diving is to try out my new wide angle lens and I can't do that if I can't see further than the hand in front of my face - unless I just want a photo of my hand.
So, what was my excuse this time? Yellow fever. Now, I think that is a very good excuse, don't you? OK, so I may not have full-blown yellow fever, but I have been feeling crappy ever since my yellow fever vaccination - another price to pay for our upcoming holiday.
Anyhoo, no diving this weekend, but I promise that I will get wet soon. Just to keep you all happy and coming back to my blog, I have given you a taste of photos to come. These were taken last year on the wreck of the HMCS Saskatchewan, sunk off the coast of Nanaimo, Vancouver Island. For more information, go to the Artificial Reef Society of B.C. Since I just went to the page, I have found out that a new wreck is going to be sunk right off the coast of Vancouver - I can now look forward to diving the HMCS Annapolis, a 371-foot Destroyer - how exciting!
