Ok, here is the story.
Sometime back I decided to get back into SCUBA diving. I first qualified back in about 1987 and did some diving for a number of years, even doing some competition spear fishing.
Anyway I got married and had kids and the diving set on the back burner. I would dive once every 6-7 years it seemed.
My son also wanted to get into SCUBA so we decided to take the class together. I was going to just take a refresher but the dive shop, the same one I used in '87, suggested I just retake the whole class, offering to reduce my fees by 50%.
So my son and I signed up together and did the pool lessons.
Last weekend we went to Beaver Lake, Arkansas and did our Open Water Qualifying dives.
My son did very well and enjoyed himself tremendously.
It was a golden weekend for both of us.
