LOL I love mangoes! Always looking for new ways to use them!

Holly your narrative is wonderful. I love how you've described your emotions and the actual physical challenges of your first open water dive. When we sail in warmer weather we often toss the anchor and go in for a swim. There have been times when all of us have been in the water and the bay has gotten choppier. Getting up on the ladder is not the easiest thing under those conditions, and I've never tried it with flippers on!

Like you & J, my sailing buddies and I are an adventurous lot and aren't always as mindful of the safety rules as we should be. Maybe it has something to do with us all being female and having to prove that we can do it. In 20 years of sailing, I've never seen anyone on our boat wear a life jacket.

A few times it's crossed my mind that maybe we should always leave someone on the boat, and we've talked about it, but we never do. Normally, just as we jump in, we each take one of those combo seat cushion/flotation devices and toss them into the water. There's been times when we've forgotten them and someone's had to go back on board and get them. Usually we toss soap and shampoo in with us and have to swim to get all of the floating stuff. We toss it back and forth to one another as we're finished using it.

Loved the stories of feeding the fish, both your's and Jan's. Thumbs up

Did anyone see that movie that's been on cable recently where everyone was in the water off of their boat and no one could get back in? They were out there in the water for days. It was brutal.
