I sat down, twenty five feet under water, under a boat dock. Ahead of me was green water. Beside and below me was the same.
A friend had an air pump hooked up to scuba regulators, and I was learning to dive. Unlike snorkels, it didn’t feel the the equipment was out to get me. It was amazing to be able to breathe underwater.
Let me say it again: It was amazing to be able to breathe underwater! I could move about and exist in this off limits to extended visits by humans environment.
