Not afraid to say I shed a few...Remembering sitting on my dads lap age three July 1969 watching Apollo 11 on that old black and white bunnie eared t.v. take off. Can't believe I've got that memory, and now alone in my office sitting watching this almost 50 years later.
First time I got to go on an international snorkel/dive trip was to Belize in 1981. I was fifteen and we drove down in a Datsun Pickup full of dive gear, and a portable compressor, back then it was hard to find a place to fill your scuba tanks, years later I decided it was time to take a break from my Job and see Belize through a greybeards eyes, to say that San Pedro Belize has changed is an understatement, they even have a hyperbaric Facility. I will post here about snorkeling,traveling, and stuff that happens along the way. Thank You for visiting! Burnie
