We left around that is early, and proceeded to accomplish two dives. We saw several things, typical stuff we’ve seen before, but i simply have to leap into the HIGHLIGHT for the plunge
(highlight of ALL my dives built in reality), the shark. The right for reef activity, and the left for pelagics, or open water big fish in the middle of the dive, with the reef that slopes down deep into the open ocean on our right, and the deep blue on our left, we were instructed to keep an eye on both sides. Our plunge teacher instantly stopped finning, then gestured for all of us to prevent. He made the unmistakeable hand signal for “shark”, that will be fundamentally placing your hand on your own forehead, just like a shark’s dorsal fin. A cool chill blended with electric excitement went through my veins. Although I’ve yearned to experience a shark all my entire life, I’m nevertheless deathly scared of them, a deep-seated fear, seeded my numerous viewings of “Jaws” as a youngster and “Shark Week” on Discovery.
