Lesson two - The Paranoid Android
...musings of a mechanically depressed robot...
Lesson two
Last night I did the second PADI closed water lesson.

It was a lot more relaxed than the first one... although the start was a bit traumatic.  We did our first fully kitted entry into the pool... jumping into a pool with two tonnes of gear on your back is daunting to say the least... made all the more difficult by the clowns feet flippers.

We practised loosing our masks - we felt what it was like to run out of air(!) and we swapped between snorkel and regulator and back whilst under water.  We practised controlled descents and accents.

It was a lot of fun... and I felt a lot more comfortable under water than last time... I didn't feel the need to suck down huge lungfuls of air at every opportunity!

Also... I aced the final two tests... 90/90 !!

Tis a lot easier doing the back flip thing out of a boat into the water than jumping in ...

I hope so - the jump scares me... I'm cacking myself worrying that I'll hit the tank on the side.

Fantastic! Does this mean you're going on a scuba holiday soon? :D
