El Capitan Dive

This morning, we went out for dive #5! We explored the wrecked El Capitan ship in Ilanin Bay. This was by far the easiest descent for me, because I had no issues with my ears. That was a huge burden lifted as I went deeper & deeper. I was pretty excited to finally explore underwater without worrying about my constant ear trouble. However, I was not thrilled with the overall dive itself because the visibility was very low & my goggles continued to fog up every so often. So in addition to not being able to see due to the murky waters, I was having trouble seeing clearly through my goggles. It was just frustrating. But, I have now have hope for future dives that I can regulate my ears quicker & easier.
We purchased a package deal with 10 dives included, so it looks like we'll be getting in a lot of practice before heading back to Texas...

I have to admit that I am a little bit jealous of all your adventures in paradise! You and Sam are getting to do things that Dave and I have talked about doing for years! We kind of figured that once we had kids, those dreams would vanish. It is encouraging seeing you go off and do exciting things! It gives me hope!!!

Hello! Have you been to Tagaytay? Don't miss this place before you go back to the states. I'm sure you'll love the view of Taal Volcano. Try to visit these sites :)

Yes, we were lucky to visit Tagaytay soon after we moved here. The volcano was amazing & beautiful. I didn't quite enjoy the horseback ride up the mountain though. The horses were pretty pitiful, bony & just made me sad to look at. We didn't spend any time in the town much, but I've heard it's a wonderful little place to visit with great restaurants & inns to stay at.
