Yippee.

AR-160319137.jpg&MaxW=650I used to be a pretty poor swimmer.  Despite lessons.

Then we moved to Florida.  Actually, taking the Florida bar many years ago, we took the opportunity to go snorkeling in the Keys.  One week holed up in a hotel in Tampa for the exam and the next in the Keys.

Jumping into crystal clear water with a life jacket, it soon became clear, floating in salt water is not hard sans jacket.   So it was a great time and I learned how to float.

Ok, fast forward – after our move I loved to snorkel along the gulf coast.  At first.  Not a lot to see, but fun anyway.

It was fun while it lasted.
