I learned how to dive while living in
My father dives as well so we booked an excursion with Stuart Cove's prior to our trip. I felt a lot better knowing everything was set. All of my previous dives were done in
We did a 2 tank AM dive, so we got picked up pretty early. There were a few people from our hotel that were going also, most of them on the full day trip. Everyone had their own equipment and they were preparing things as we waited. Now I am pretty much a novice. Up until the
The ride to Stuart’s Cove took quite a while, as it was across
I guess it is a six-one-half dozen situation. It must not have made a difference.
Our first dive was at “Wreck on the Wall.” It is exactly what it claims to be, a long sea wall. It was pretty interesting because it was nice reef and then all of a sudden wide open ocean.
Our second dive was at “Nari Nari”, which means stingray I think. Apparently at this site you can see lots of rays. There were two points to dive to. One was an old shark cage left from the filming of “MythBusters”, a show on the Discovery Channel. That was pretty funny because a girl diving with us worked for the Discovery Channel. She was involved with filming “Deadliest Catch”. (I love that show!) The other spot was a sunken Cessna that was used in the filming of one of the “JAWS” movies. We did not see any stingrays, and I was a little disappointed. I really liked seeing the Cessna, and was able to have some cool pictures taken.
Señor Frog’s was our destination for dinner one evening. Of course, this led to some teasing about ordering frog legs for my goddaughter. She seemed excited about dinner and even more when we arrived and she saw the giant frogs everywhere.
The last time I was in the
There was a large group of us so of course we ordered a TON of food. Lo and behold, Frog Leg was a drink on the menu. I took full advantage of that and showed it to my goddaughter.
Before long a clown came around and made us crazy balloon hats to where. They started having a dance competition on the bar which ended in the contestants racing to collects as many pairs of shoes as they could. We tried to help the cause, but our guy didn’t win.
FINALLY the conga line came, and Kristen and I hopped on it. I usually avoid the conga line as much as possible, but I make an exception at Señor Frog’s. The kids really got a kick out of seeing us dance around. The night was a lot of fun and it was nice to have a crazy dinner atmosphere. We didn’t stay the whole night, because as you can see the kids were pretty pooped.
