I’d peeked below the surface at Siren’s Isle in the past and I thought it might be fun to explore. So, one of the things I wanted to try was get some friends together and head over for some scuba diving.
On Saturday afternoon, I contacted friends and invited them to join me at SS Galaxy for a boating trip to Sirens Isle. It took a lot of time to get organized because most of the group hadn’t been scuba diving yet. I had what I thought were some freebie outfits which turned out to be a real problem, so we scrounged around looking for scuba gear. Finally, Tippy found some scuba gear for only L$50 on Marketplace and quickly our group suited up for the journey.
|That’s Tippy and Antares on the bow with me at the helm
and Gwenny and Becky in the stern.
The boat was full and the first time I’d piloted
a boat with five people aboard.
|Here’s a photo by Canary Beck
of our crew speeding toward Sirens Isle.
You may notice that Antares moved off the bow
and Gwenny is missing (she’s in the netherworld)
More on our journey in my Notebook.
|We landed on Sirens Isle and setup camp.
That’s Antares who immediately created his man cave
with Becky, me and Gwenny (l to r).
Tippy was in tp, and Leanna and Sommer
joined us later.
|Shortly after we all arrived, we descended
and as we descended we discovered
the waters around Sirens Isle are very deep
and there are many things to discover down there.
|This is a photo by Canary Beck, Becky,
which captured us floating deep below the surface.
It was scenes like this that caused the girlfriends
to become immersed in those special feelings
you can only get while scuba diving.
|This is a photo I really like.
The girls headed off with a couple guys who came by
and took them to see the Cracken on another sim.
I was waiting for Sommer to arrive
and just enjoying the beauty and peacefulness.
I remember my first time going scuba diving at JDC Dive World and I could re-experience that amazement through my friends. I know there are four converts to scuba diving. Here’s one other thing. I had a brief chat with the owner of a scuba magazine a few days ago. I told him I had only done Second Life scuba and I was surprised that while he was totally into real life scuba, he had been in SL as well. Scuba is a unique experience in any world I think.
NOTICE: Friends have contacted me when they heard about the scuba adventure and they want to go. So I’d like to set these little expeditions up about once a month. I know of several places to scuba on the Blake Sea but also another dozen spots on private estates. Just let me know if you want to go with my group.
