Random Vacation Post - Bahamas Dive Trip

I was going through all of my pictures and came across a lot of vacation pictures from our "pre-Bella" days and thought I would post a few just for fun! Everyone in my family scuba dives and so Marc, my cousin Ken and I decide to go to the Bahamas on a 21 person liver board. It was my favorite vacation yet. All we did was dive, eat, nap and look out at the beautiful ocean!
Here's the boat... The Blackbeard

The hole down to our room that consisted of only bunk beds.... Marc & me on the bottom, Ken on the top! All of our clothes, toiletries, etc were kept at the foot of our bed and to open the door you had to stand on the bottom bunk so the door could swing in, otherwise it would hit you and would not open if you were standing on the floor.

Our view!!!
Marc & me
turtle... my favorite!

The best part of the trip was the shark dive. We knelled on the sand bottom of the ocean (about 20 ft) and the boat captain let down a shish kabob of fish. The sharks swarmed it while we watched and then when all the fish were gone they swam around the reef we were near.

Every once and a while you would turn a corner and be face to face with a rather large shark.

But, by far, the scariest part was when the dive was over and you had to go up to the surface... knowing the sharks were still below you. I kept my mask in the water the whole time looking down and tried not to look like a tasty shark snack!
