Most memorable dive
"I think the one where I saw the rays"
I think the one where I saw the rays, because we were about fourteen metres down and you’ve no idea how clear the water is, and the dive leader pointed up, you know, and there were these two rays, and they were so beautiful. Because you were looking at their faces, you know, because you were looking up at them. They were snow white and of course when I came out I said to my husband, you know, “they were that big,” and he said, “oh yeah, yeah, yeah,” you know, and when I went to get my dive, because you have to get your books signed to say you’ve been down, and when I went to get my book signed, he said, “I hear you were very lucky yesterday,” and I said, he said, “you saw the rays,” and I said, “they were big,” and he said, “they were ten foot.”
