OFF

STAFF

I’m taking the morning off.  (I need to diagnose an electrical problem on Escape.)  But Scuba Instructor Rich Goldman is hard at work back in New Jersey.  Here’s his text from this morning:

High tide 9:08am. Can jump tide by 1 hour so I am meeting my student at 7am (enough time to brief OW 3 and plan OW 4.  Right off the beach in 62 degree water.  No boat diving so this is WORK.  How I miss the Sea Base. Really gives you an appreciation of how much easier it is to teach down there.
After this I drive 3 hours to certify camp staff in Healcare Provider CPR, Wilderness First Aid, Blood Borne Pathogens and Epi-Pen administration.  Have a gr8 day sir.

Rich added that he is hoping for 10′ of visibility this morning.  Fortunately he has one student instead of eight.  The conditions remind me of the lakes back home.  Scuba instruction can be a dream job.  But it is a job, and just like other jobs, it can be less than ideal at times.  Rich will rejoin the Florida Sea Base staff later this summer.
Now I need to check out this electrical issue.
