    I took Scuba Diving lessons when I retired and got certified for Deep Water Diving. My deepest dive was 100 feet down The Great White Wall off Taveuni Fiji. I was a bit anxious but relieved when told that there were some folks with National Geographic diving with my wife and I. This was the best of the dozen or so dives I have made.

    My deepest underwater adventure was when I dipped into the deep end of an 8 foot pool and went to the bottom for a few seconds.

    I went down in one of those "tourist submersibles" in Grand Cayman once. I think we went down to 110 feet, which was deep enough for me. What was really interesting was how the color leached out of everything. Everybody looked like 3-day-old corpses. Blue lips, grey skin.

    My youngest son is a certified diver, but I'm basically a pool swimmer and don't venture into the deep.

    There is a peacefullness and serenity of being deep under water that does not exist anywhere else.

    I have only been snorkel deep, but did it a few times in the Caribbean and then on the Great Barrier Reef. The giant clams on the Barrier Reef are memorable.

    Juniper and Alexander Springs in the Ocala National Forest are neat places here in Florida.
