First day of Spring and it was a beautiful day!
Unfortunately Jeff and I didn't spend much of it outside. Jeff has been sick with a cold for over a week, and I think I'm fighting it, cause all I want to do is sleep lately. Don't get me wrong, I'm pretty good at sleeping, but I've definitely been way more tired than usual. Despite his illness, and my desire to stay in bed all day, we went up to ScubaFest here in Columbus today and now I can't wait to get the dive season started! Whitestar Quarry opens in less than 2 weeks, less than a month for Portage Quarry, Gilboa may already be open (can't really tell from the website), and of course Circleville Twin Quarries is always open (well, no staff, but you can get in to dive)!
Scubafest is always fun, we got to see some friends we haven't seen in a while and made some new connections. I want to volunteer for MAST the Maritime Archaeological Survey Team to survey archaeological sites and wrecks in the Great Lakes. Somehow, even after diving in Ohio for the last 3 years, we've never dove in the Great Lakes! I figure this will give Jeff and I a great opportunity to do it. I also would like to look at volunteer opportunities with SECORE. They work with the Columbus Zoo and other public aquariums throughout the world to promote coral reef conservation and reproduction. I've been wanting to get involved with some reef conservation efforts, so I'm excited to learn some more about this organization.
Well, off to bed, one more weekend day left, better enjoy it!
