Fun in the sun!
I was invited on a scuba diving adventure to rescue an ancient anchor from a ship wreck in the ocean! It was quite the task considering there were only two scuba divers, two boatmen, and me haha. It was interesting to see how they got the anchor up; they used a water balloon type thing that they attached to the anchor, then filled it with air and the anchor lifted! It was my school lesson for the day haha! Then the anchor weighed so much that we had to hang it from the side of the boat until we got to shore; the boat was going REALLY slow. But then we got back and it took eight guys to haul it up. Then after that was accomplished we went back out to snorkel and scuba! The scuba divers have these underwater fish guns/spears that they use. They go to the bottom of the ocean then shoot fish from underwater; intense stuff. While they were doing that I snorkeled! The water is so much nicer farther out! People tend to use the ocean shore as the “Ladies and Gents” so most beaches have nasty ocean access. I was just flipper-ing around looking at fish when I realized I was in the middle of the ocean then freaked out and sprinted back to the boat haha. I didn’t want a shark or whale to eat me haha. It was a fun day!
