I Remember When: I went Scuba Diving!

 

I remember when I went diving and traveling before COVID-19 and #SafeAtHome. I hope that we can all travel safely again soon.

I learned to scuba dive in 1990 and it changed my life. I love exploring underwater. I have traveled all around our planet to visit the creatures of the ocean. I have so many more places I hope to see in the sea!

Enjoy my stories and videos about amazing underwater adventures!
