A dip in the canal

Sun 25th December 2011

After our food had gone down, we decided it was warm enough for a little swim. The water was warm like a bath!

Swimming in salt water on Christmas Day, well I never. As you can see Matt still had his paper hat on!

 

I’m A-ok

Sat 22nd October 2011

We quickly learned the commonly used underwater sign language. This sign means I’m okay and its not surprising considering the setting!

Matt says...

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.

 

Snorkeling fun

Sun 2nd October 2011

Today we tried snorkeling in the gorgeous blue water of The Perhentians. Both snorkeling virgins, we were super excited to get started!

My first time snorkeling today! I hope I see a few fishes!

It took a while to get the hang of breathing through the snorkel. The first few times I enhaled plenty of salty seawater!

 

Spot the swimmer

Tue 13th September 2011

Matt swam a little way out so I headed back to take some pictures. Can you spot him in this shot?

Matt says...

Is that me or is it a speck of dirt on your monitor? If it’s the latter clean your monitor you mucky beast!

Helllllllllo down there!

Sat 20th August 2011

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.

Matt says...

I’m not going to lie, jumping into water from 4+ meters hurts! It doesn’t hurt your body but the pressure of the water shooting up your nose isn’t pleasant. Would be a great way to clear that blocked nose though.
