Scuba at Goat Island

This weekend I went Scuba Diving for the first time

The other times were for my course so they don't really count...

All last week I was jumping around the house like a crazy woman

I just couldn't contain my excitement

Husband decided we would go to Goat Island

Its a marine reserve with a strict ' look but don't touch and especially no taking ' policy

So we arrived, and I started getting kitted up

We were the only ones going in the water at that stage so had quite the audience watching us get ready

Down three flights of stairs to the beach and we were in!

Here's me 

Here's Husband

And of course it wouldn't be right not to do ' the pose '

Here's one of many crayfish we spotted

and a GIANT snapper

this pic reminded me of one of those predator type shots, stalking in the background!
that thing was MASSIVE!

the rules say ' no feeding the fish ' but that Kina was already in the water, we just crushed it open
Husband got a bite on the finger so promptly dropped the Kina

Macho man must pick up rock

and here's me after the dive, SOOOOOOOOOO Happy!!!

but I felt like this on the inside

you would too if you had to carry all the gear and 12kgs of weights in your pockets and having to climb back up the stairs!

What did you do this weekend?
