YES, it is that time again for ABC WEDNESDAY.
Today's letter is U. My word for today is ... UNDERWATER.
First, let me say, of all my family members (5 of us), I am the one that is most unlikely to be in water.
#1. I don't like water in my face. (I am sure this is due to some undeniably, horrific experience that I had as a child ... even if I can no longer remember it.)
#2. I am NOT a strong swimmer. So, if you are with me in the water, don't look to me to save you if something should happen. It's all I can do to save myself.
With that being said ... If you have looked at my blog or any of my ABC Wednesday post, you know that for our 30th Anniversary, my husband and I went on a cruise. It was an unforgettable experience!
It was also the only cruise that "we" will ever take. Where we went was up to me. I chose a cruise, with hundreds of people on board. His choice would be some uncrowded place where he could nap the days away (and yes, he did do some of that.) All our excursions were geared towards him. All excursions included water.
Knowing I would be in the water and wanting to document this unique experience was one of my goals.
I researched and then bought a little Pentax Optio W60, point and shoot waterproof Camera.
At first I was uneasy about the whole thing, after all, I had to be underwater. Taking pictures in the ocean is a great undertaking, the fish are moving, you are moving, and the water is moving.
As you can see, the fish seem unconcerned, even unaware of people in the water.
This truly was an ULTIMATE vacation.
For more U words got to ABC WEDNESDAY.
