      Steve, it was wonderful to see you again! We dove with Al (ScubaDad), Denny (Mrfixitchapman), and a couple others that I forget what their SB user names are. I'll let you know if I can think of them later.

      Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui Thailand

      It was a stunner day during my IDC training in July 08. I have many dives at this location but this was unusual to say the least. The vis was 25m. We managed to see a hug seahorse. Normally the conditions are ideal for rescue training :) Koh Tao would be a better choice for fun diving, but this could be an option while you are staying on Samui for a tune up dive or night dive.
