The course was in Sodwana Nature Reserve in the Kwazulu Natal Province. Sodwana is not far from the Mozambique border. This is Kevin,their very patient Diving Instructor.The Indian Ocean is on the left of the picture just behind those trees.
Helping each other with their gear...They reminded me of spies in a James Bond movie in their wet suits..
Serious looking faces as they try to get their flippers on. Jessica says that little punk on the left puked a lot...both under and above the water....Speaking of which, her friend advised her to be really careful when surfacing from sea dives to not, under any circumstances, surface near the boat as vomiting people lean over the sides and vomit right on top of you!! She speaks from experience....Put that away for later use if ever you should go diving in a beginners class!
Now breathe through that thingy in your mouth...
Close your eyes and swim from this end of the pool to the other side..only using your legs,no arms..
...and this is where it was proven, for once and for all.., that..
...guys have no sense of direction..! Just joking!
See, girls can swim in a straight line with their eyes closed...did I mention that before..?
BTW if you get a leg cramp in the sea,this is how you get rid of it...Don't yell out in pain,remember,you are under the water....!
I have divided this up in a couple of posts as there are quite a few pictures. The pics of the kids in the ocean will be developed soon. Jess picked up as many shark's teeth on the bottom of the ocean as she could!
Part 2 follows soon.
