    I'm a dive-toddler, now.

    Flew to the west coast (Vancouver Island) this last weekend and did my dive 4 for OW, then did 4 more dives.

    And on one of the dives I actually felt like I was getting the hang of this. I was cold, and scared, and facinated, and thrilled, and agitated, swollen with pride, and humbled all within about 5 minutes.

    I know this is pretty basic stuff, but I am very excited. :dork2:

    Basic or not, it is an incredible feeling to be a new certified diver. You are now part of a world that many others are not capable of seeing. Welcome to the club :D

    lol I know how you feel. I have done my first dives after OW this past weekend. We had a great time and our instructer had some new discover scuba divers with him and he treated us like he didn't have to worry because he knew we knew what to do (and we did!) so we didn't feel like the newbes so much.
