Back, with Gills

I have returned from my trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands.

I visited my friend Alex, who lives on St. Thomas. She is a scuba instructor and got me my open-water certification!

Scuba diving is amazing. Breathing underwater and coming close to all of these otherwise inaccessible plants and animals is indescribably cool.

We also went snorkeling about three different times, once after we took a kayak out in a bay on a beautiful day.

It's unbelievably beautiful there.

Then I left. :(

Thanks, Alex and Ed!
