TWO SHARKS AND TURTLES. OR LUCK BY DIVING

What is luck? I think it is just the ability to listen to your heart. Luck begins, as it seems, with the little things, the simple things that can please or just cause wild delight. Today was just such a day! I am happy that I can feel such strong emotions and get into situations that give me so much joy. I’ll start from the beginning. Yesterday I did something not feeling too well, not too hot in the sun, not the air conditioner from a cold — just not sure about the reasons.

Pomeroy temperature, 37 and 2, and upset. The next day (with respect to yesterday) I had planned another dive, and I really wanted to get on it. I do very much addicted to this thing, after finally decided to try it. But that’s another story. So, with doubts to go or not to go, I went to bed. And in the morning (7-20 alarm clock), I was too sleepy to measure the temperature of anything to think, but simply got up, dressed, and went on to come after me avtobusike on the pier. The first good news was that the ship today would be about 20 people with the team and instructors. I like a man not particularly fond of big crowds mentally glad of this fact. Generally, with those people. With that I go diving, one day there is 3 dives at three different dive sites. We had breakfast on the way to the first, collect gear, «doprosypaemsya» someone like me this should be just for a while, until we reach the place. By the way, I will say that I’m here for «ponyla» that «oh how I want to see a big turtle, want-want», and that’s all I wanted. Here’s our first dive (at Palong, Phi -Phi Island, Thailand) and Aw, Snap! Turtle! Not very much, I would say the average size, but the more experienced comrades then said she was a little girl. A dream come true so to speak! Until that moment I had never seen so turtles to the wild here, into the sea, swims. It is simply a stunner. Of course, the whole underwater world is something magnificent! And during my first dive I any fish seemed exotic. So experienced divers can only condescending smile, «Yes, we’ve seen a thousand times such.» For me, a person who sees a turtle so the first time, it was a fantastic spectacle. But the miracles did not end there. Our second stop was at Koh Bida Nai (Phi -Phi Island, Thailand. Nothing indicated surprise. And then! Not far from us seemed reef shark. She looked in our direction, I thought there was something his shark turned and disappeared from thicker water. I even scared did not have time. of course, I heard that there are sharks that they are safe, if they do not get in every way, but be aware of the fact and expect to see are two different things. Our accompanying diver showed me a sign that all okay, they are afraid of nothing, because he is, as I think, realized that I was the shark had not seen and could be quite scared. to say that I was not frightened at all can not be, it was a very exciting time. a mixture of surprise, delight, easy horror (once the movie «jaws» has surfaced in the memory), and yet it was positive emotions. it’s like opening a new experience to see the shark is not on the TV screen, but next to him. in a sea with him! You know, this is very different that when simply told or read, and you know that there are sharks here. And when you see it with your own eyes. I saw a shark. Then we sailed Spark Point (still the same Thailand, Andaman Sea, but not close to the Phi Phi). The mood was excellent and better than I did not expect that you can see something more exotic, but just enjoying the corals, fish and general relaxation of being on depth. And then, next, next to the sand, I saw a fish. Only it was not a fish, but a whole rybischa. And I just could not see what her nice little teeth and snout, otherwise he would immediately recognize it another shark, this time the leopard. In fact, I recently engaged in diving, but since January this year. And from the underwater world just delighted with this time, because in reality it is much more surprising than a television screen. So the name of sea creatures I know, usually after. According to the principle, «but this is up there it was,» and the instructor or dive master, with whom I am again the dive, I said, what is it was. In general, I did not realized that this lovely, so nice to arrange the sand, was a shark. And the name itself, recognized only by boat. That is, the reef shark, it is quite so his shark shark. A leopard, except a kind of faces, looks quite like archetypical shark, at least in my understanding of them. Of course, all these arguments came only later. Under the water, I looked at the reaction of people, which swim and knowing that they are much more experienced divers I have decided that if they are considered safe to swim there and watch it and I too will be quite safe. Shark on us almost no attention, lying on the sand itself. At some point she got sick, and she swam away. Not far away, a little later, we again came across it. It seems to me that it is at the moment mentally promatyugalas that we are heathens porelaksirovat she does not give his attention.

At this time, we do not for a long time staring at her and soon sailed on. As it turned out, that only to see another leopard charm, but bigger. Today, March 23, 2013 I was able to see two different shark — reef and leopard, and a turtle! This is just a miracle! I am delighted! I still smile never left the face of the joy of the experience, from the emotions that I experienced! Diving itself is an amazing thing, I sat down on it as a potent drug the first time and forever. And today was able to see so much new that I breath away! I swam all day and regretted only one thing that I still have yet to take a camera to take pictures. Yes, I totally have recently been diving, and I’m still learning to confidently stand under the water, not to spend too quickly the air, and other important things that come with experience. And so, not sure I can even take pictures while diving. However, even the idea that a couple of days dives and I decide to try to take pictures warms my soul. And as long as I can remember only a camera captures those wonderful moments that the universe gives me, I try to share all these words.
