Hi all!

Mitsuguy told me that I could find other cool divers here so here I am!

I'm a PADI Instructor and I work at Small Hope Bay Lodge on Andros Island in the Bahamas. I've been diving for 5 years and have been an instructor for 2. I ran away from my corporate job in San Diego and became a permanent ex-pat beach bum! (Be jealous, it's okay.)

I'm looking forward to talking diving and meeting new people here!

Welcome to the forum!

Sounds like you made some great life choices, hopefully you can enlighten us with some motivational tales from your second life to give hope to those still stuck working for "the Machine".

Hey Bunny. Welcome to our happy hovel.

SplitLip says he's cool. Meh. Ask him to introduce you to Tina.

Coty has posted images from his dives and USVI location. Do the same so we can drool about the cool dive locations you have. Who knows...you might drum-up some business.

I posted a couple of shots to the photo gallery and I'll post more next week. Right now I'm trying to get some work done on our website before I head off to CA for a week.

/where I will NOT be diving because holy hell that is cold water.

/where I will NOT be diving because holy hell that is cold water.Oh come on!! Catalina is a little "brisk". Nothing an "old pro" can't handle:smiley36:

Say hello to California for me. I'll be back there in May for a couple weeks.

I learned how to dive off La Jolla Shores and I did my AOW training off San Clemente island and Catalina. It's funny because I never remember being cold, not even in 49 degree water in my 7mm.

Now I wear two 3mm Farmer Janes, one 3mm long sleeve shorty, two rash guards and a hood in 78 degree water and I'm FREEZING.

(Yeah, yeah, I'm a wuss.)

Anyway, I can't dive on doc's orders. I separated my shoulder on Nov. 1st and started diving on it on Nov 7th. The doc finally put the kibosh on diving (with terrorist tactics, I might add. She wouldn't give me pain meds unless I agreed to rest.)

So I'm dry and unhappy. (That's what she said. :smiley36:)

Not to worry. Lulubelle makes us toe the line. She's some sort of Amazon with 10AAAA shoes and a 36-inch inseam. Trust me...we don't piss-off Lulubelle. Ever.

Yeh, I felt the wrath once, so now when ever I am posting I am always thinking WWLD?

Hmmm. Time will tell.
Although after seeing the Guinness post, I'm becoming a fan. (Bunch of guys now searching "Guinness")

The funny thing is that IRL, I'm the least scary person ever. I'm a whole 5'3" and when I'm not growing another human, quite thin. I guess sometimes it's the small ones you have to worry about.:smiley2:

Great find....When I read "her" first description as a beach bum rather than bunny, I thought it was a guy pretending....Guess not now.If so, a very good pretense...:smiley30:
