Diving in a Wet Suit

I signed up to go scuba diving but wasn't quite sure what to expect.  While I am a certified diver, my experience has always been in cold water diving in a dry suit.  Today will be my first time diving in a wet suit.  I wasn't too sure what to expect and just hoped that the wet suit will keep me warm enough.  Growing up in Vancouver, I learned really quickly that even in the summer, the water is cold.  Even when I go to tropical locations I have to think twice about going in the water to swim.  It has been ingrained in me to think that ocean water is invariably cold

After donning all the equipment, I felt like something was missing.  Weight.  I wasn't used to wearing only four pounds of weight.  With my dry suit, I have to wear 36 pounds!  My backpack probably weighs as much as the equipment today.  In Vancouver, after I put on all my gear, my only thought is to get into the water as fast as possible.  It is just too heavy to be standing around!

In the back of my head I was still thinking that I'll be greeted with ice cold water once I take the giant step off the boat but I was pleasantly surprised when that didn't happen.  Instead it was cool water that seeped in through my suit slowly.  The dive master and I bobbed around for a couple seconds and then descended.  I didn't bring my dive computer with me on this trip and now I wish I had.  It could have told me the temperature of the water, how long we were diving for, and to what depth.  (The dive master told me we dove to 65 feet for 40 minutes.)

I could document the things I saw.  If only I had an underwater camera.  That way I can at least ask or try to find out what they are once we are back at the surface.  Apparently we saw something that is the relative to the Scorpion fish and I didn't even notice!  There are 20 or so different dive locations around and they will be going to a different location tomorrow so I might just head back there for another dive.  Maybe we'll be lucky and see a Sunfish or an octopus.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
