Diver Diva - Yelm Washington USA 

About Me:  I just entered Divemaster Training, and I love it. but it is my passion. I wish I would have found this in my 20s instead of my late 30s, but Jacque Cousteau dove well into his 80s. My hope is to get through divemaster in a year, then go through instructor training so I can join the GirlDiver family to teach new divers in the kind and gentle way that I was taught.
Gender
Female
Favorite Dive Gear
Mares trilastic 6.5 m semi-dry suit. IST liners for boots keeps toes toasty. For warm water, reef gloves are a must.
Favorite Dive Locations
Titlow Beach, Tacoma Washington - it is breathtaking. Now, the Swirling Reef of Death in St. Croix, USVI is my favorite site mainly because of the hour long dive on an 80 tank and the rays that hung out under the sand.
Activities
I AM the Eel Whisperer! Had two National Geographic moments with a Wolf Eel here in Washington and my newest with a Moray Eel in St. Croix. Somehow, the eels love me!
Interests
Diving, of course!
Favorite Music
Eclectic mixture of pop, jazz, classical, but please, no rap- it gives me a headache
Favorite TV Shows
My name is Earl (as that is my dad´s name, too)
Favorite Movies
Heaven Can Wait
Favorite Books
Anything by Patricia Cornwell or Julie Garwood
Favorite Quotes
Real women wear neoprene

Hi I was looking for other diving divas, where have you been diving lately

Hi Rhonda, it is not to far away from the place you went diving in St, Croix. I am inviting you to see the first city in America, Santa Marta at the foot of the tallest mountain in the tropic and the fortress build against the pirate´s attacks in Cartagena and dive along these two sites in the Colombian Caribbean, to do some spearfishing, photo, underwater video, etc., let me know the dates of your stay here to set you up and show you around, thanks

But he is quite beautiful... Earl likes that barge area for Chez Barge/Blue Chute. And the kids that named the ´´Swirling Reef of Death´´.. hehe... we just reattached a missing dive buoy from out near Sandy Point that was lost during the hurricane. Come on back and dive some more! 8^)

So you know Earl eh? Those love bites from a moray aren´t pretty. Everybody should make sure they don´t point at him, he was used to being fed at one time and now tends to harbor that need still.. 8^O

You asked what camera I use...it´s a Canon Powershot A95. It´s 5 megapixel, but it takes better photos than some much higher megapxl cameras I´ve seen. They don´t make them anymore but I like it so much I just bought another one Used! I´d highly recommend any Canon camera. Canon also makes the housings.
