After our food had gone down, we decided it was warm enough for a little swim. The water was warm like a bath!
We quickly learned the commonly used underwater sign language. This sign means I’m okay and its not surprising considering the setting!
The most important sign language you will learn in diving is the “cut throat” sign; if your buddy does that it means they are out of air. Luckily if that happens there are many things you can do if it happens. It was all part of the training!
I love this photo. It’s like I’m swimming in the ocean all by myself. Diving really is unbelievable, it makes you appreciate the ocean for what it is, a huge expanse of water; a neverending playground.
Today we tried snorkeling in the gorgeous blue water of The Perhentians. Both snorkeling virgins, we were super excited to get started!
Our tour leader took this photo of Matt and I,swimming in the pool just before Matt decided to do the very scary looking jump from the ledge up above.
