In 2021 I will ...
At the beginning of each year I make a list that is a combination of goals, a to-do list, and a wish list. It might contain books I want to read, places I want to visit, or tasks and skills to accomplish.
It's May 17, and I haven't even started on some of the goals, but I've made progress in others. I've also crossed off the ones that no longer interest me, and I have added new things to do.
One of my goals for 2021 was to achieve advanced adventure scuba status. To accomplish that, I have a list of specialty advanced classes I want to take. I've passed my Nitrox test, and if all goes well I will pass the hands on part, certify as a nitrox diver, and dive with Nitrox tomorrow for the first time. I'm working on buoyancy, but weirdest thing is, my feet float causing me to be head down more often than not. So I will be diving with ankle weights to see if that helps. I want to get my advanced buoyancy, deep diver, wreck diver, and cavern certifications also.
Here are a few pictures from my last dive. This is Vortex Springs in the Florida panhandle.
I would love to get a good underwater camera. A Sea Life with lights would be great. One of our dive club members has a Sea Life with lights and here are several of his photos from St. Andrews. The photos were taken by Tony Taylor.
I have more to say about things I plan to achieve/accomplish in 2021, but it's getting late, and since I dive tomorrow, I need to get some sleep.
What do you hope to accomplish in 2021?
