    I know this is totally lame but I just had dives #25 & 26 today, so I got to bump up my total dive classification number here on SB. I'm absolutely beaming at hitting this "milestone." :)

    To make this post even remotely on topic, great day today diving New England. Cathedral Rocks in Rockport MA, saw a sculpin and jellies for the first time, plus the usual collection of Northern Red Anemonies, lobsters, crabs, starfish.... Glorious. I'm even feeling pretty competent in my dry suit.

    Don't stop now! I should hit mine in the next month or so, if work-related stress doesn't keep me from the water. Glorious!

    First of all, Congrats on this milestone.

    As you keep diving there will be many more to come. Not all of them will be wonderful experiences, but they will be well remembered. There will be more awesome adventures and things to see and do. In very short order, you will be having a hard time remembering dive number 25. The dives will just keep racking up.

    Just keep the priority on having fun and being safe, the rest will take care of itself.

    Congratulations MADiveGirl!
    Love your handle!
    I can remember the first 25 / 50/ 100 and then they get fuzzy.
    One of my most memorable was OW dive #1 I was never the same afterward!
    They just keep getting better!

    CamG Keep Diving....Keep Training....Keep Learning!

    Congratulations. I can't remember #s 25, 26 offhand, but I do recall 19 & 20 being near Newport, RI. Back then you needed 20 logged dives to do PADI Rescue course. I managed to get to Rockport (Back Beach) this past July. Pretty good dives--found a huge periwinkle for the shell collection. It was a 15 hour day round trip from N.Y., and oh, that Boston Fri. rush hour traffic on the Mass. Pike.

    congrats on dive #25 and #26! Keep on diving and before you know it you'll be wondering where the time went

    :)

    of course I'm also slightly jealous. I hit Back Beach today, would have been nice to hit Cathedral
