Highlights from the trip to the Bahamas

So off I went!

up! Up!

I have waited so long to actually do this, and it was everything I could have hoped for and more. It wasn't scary. It was actually EXTREMELY safe feeling. I was amazed. And the view was incredible.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?
It's ME! Suddenly I'm up on top of the world
I'm glad it wasn't somebody else! I'm all out of flying cliches now
And here I come Coming in for a landing

All in all, an incredible experience to say the least. Worth every moment I waited for it. The water below was just as clear as it was yesterday, so I could see the coral below and even some of the fish swimming by.

Afterwards, I decided to buy a disposable waterproof camera and hit the ocean one last time. I swam all around the area, trying to take pictures of every fish I could find. Since it's disposable, I don't anticipate uploading those pictures for a while. In other news, I've never had much luck with those cameras, so it's perfectly possible that I may just get a bunch of pictures back of the ocean floor.

So, to recap most of the day, I was on the water, over the water, and under the water, all in one day! And it was exhilarating...Every minute of it.

Now, it's time to take a shower and see what I can do tonight, on my final night here. The week went so fast. But it was an incredible experience that I wouldn't trade for anything.
