    I cannot tell you how much I would have loved going diving this week. Unfortunately, forces have conspired to chain me to my desk. I guess I will have to dive vicariously through Matt. Will someone who is witnessing this wonderful event take the time to post reports, a picture or two, or even a video if available?

    We love you Matt. Have a blast this week.

    Bob,

    Matt was so looking forward meeting you. We all went out to dinner last night and are watching the weather in hopes it will calm down by tomorrow for a dive. We can't do this if the seas are more than 1', but we have other activities that will keep us busy.

    Today we're having a cook out at noon over at Matt's condo, then this afternoon we're all going to load up in the RVII and go watch the sun set out in the bay. We'll then come back and do dinner at one of the many local seafood places.

    Tomorrow we're hoping to do a dive, if not then we'll head up to Jules and get wet.

    Wednesday Matt's got a date with some Dolphins at Dolphins Island Care.

    And of course a lot time just hanging out and talking diving with Matt.

    I'll post more and put some pics up as they come in.

    Good Diving,

    Wow, it looks like a good time and an all-star cruise. Matt goes to Florida and look who shows up. :wink: I wish I could be there.

    Be sure to stop by the Waffle House and get some scattered, covered, smothered for me!

    Here's a few from Yesterday's dolphin encounter at Island Dolphin Care. Either me or Michelle will try to write a full report about what an amazing place Island Dolphin Care is, but for now, here's a few pics... I'm exhausted, and just got back to Fort Lauderdale, after a few amazing days with Matt, his family, and extended family. What a great crew and great time!

    Thanks to Jill and Howard for posting some of the pics from the trip. You both took some really neat pics. I am so glad that you both were able to join me on this trip. A special thanks to Robert (Jill's Husband) for filming me.

    Most of all I want to thank my great friend Gary for getting everything organized to get me to Florida, and to my dive team Frank, Drew, Beth and my Dad Charlee, my special friend John Chatterton, and Susan Long. Thanks to all of you for making this trip so special for me.

    Thanks to all my friends on scuba board for your support.

    I will be posting a blog about my trip and some pics in a couple of days after I recover.

    Thanks again to all of you,

    Safe diving,

    Matt
