Scuba Diving

From 1980 to 1991, my father and I dove in the Caribbean. For his 75th birthday, I took my dive journal and wrote a narrative of our dives and exploration of the islands we visited: Grand Cayman; Bonnaire; Grand Turk; Roatan; St. Lucia; Cayman Brac & Little Cayman; Guanaja; Dominica; Anegada; and, St. Eustatius. Dad and I made 126 saltwater dives to 11 islands over 10 years.  And it’s true, the best thing about memories is making them and when memories are shared they become treasures. I am pleased to have shared our diving trip memories with you and encourage you to make and share your own.
