Name: Holly
South Central Pa
I had always been interested in Scuba but living in Pa with a limited income did not lend it's self to the type of diving I wanted to do. No cold dark quarries for me I wanted warm water, coral reefs and tropical fish. It was just within my grasp. I decided that if I only got to go diving a couple of times on a once a year trip that was enough for me. So I signed up for classes with the local dive shop. My daughter Jen was attending the local community college at the time and she needed an elective for Phys Ed. So she joined me as the certification class fit the college credit she needed. My friend and co-owner of the coveted Bahama Timeshare also signed up but she took her classroom work and pool training closer to her home. The first time you put on a mask and regulator is quite an experience you are underwater and breathing and your mind is telling you that you can't do what you are doing. Who knew that swimming around in a pool that at the deepest was 10ft could be so exciting. So after passing the classwork and pool training, poor dear Jen went to the cold dark quarry to get her open water certfication dives completed and she was now a Certified Scuba Diver and a couple of college credits closer to a degree. On the other hand friend J and I had our local instructors sign off and with our paper work in hand headed to the Bahamas to do our open water cert dives.
