Before Travis left for his trip we had a little fun in California together.
Travis was making the most of the time he had with his little girl. He was just holding her and snuggling with her and they both fell asleep in the process. They always seem to take naps together. Kaydence missed her daddy when he was gone!
Swimming in the Pool!
Travis and I were having so much fun playing around in the pool. We were both racing to get the torpedoes out of the water first... in one breath. Needless to say, I wasted Trav. j/k
Trav was tossing Parker to Chan in the water, he was loving it. Parker is an adventuresome little guy! He is not afraid of anything!
This is everyone on the boat. They had unlimited scuba diving, a great crew, and enjoying everything with great friends.
Catalina here we come!
Catalina here we come!
Travis and Monte suiting up! Travis made the most of the time he was given. He went diving four times the first day, five times the next day, and two times the last morning. He went on ELEVEN dives!!! He got his fill for a while.
Joe Mcbride took all of these awesome pictures on the boat, he is a pro. You have to check out his site at:
His shots really capture the action in a photo, I mean check out those guns!
This is Travis and Monte diving together. They have been doing this dive around Catalina Island since Travis was thirteen years old. A tradition that has been going on every summer with our friends from Blackfoot and some new friends.
Monte's taking the leap off the boat. It is a whole new world under water. These are men of adventure!!!
Everyone is watching the wildlife surroundings. They are also catching some rays. Trav got such a nice tan from this trip!
It was about ten thirty at night and they got all their gear on and went out. Travis said it was so peaceful. They each had big flashlights and they had signals to communicate. Travis saw a halibut and an angel shark!After the dive the crew had dessert waiting for them. It was this apple crisp dessert with ice cream. They ate it while in the hot tub warming up.
There was a splash in the water that Travis saw in the distance and everyone thought it was just a seal but Trav had them go take a closer
look.It was a riso dolphin, its a lot like a pilot whale, they can be up to 3,000 pounds and are really rare to see. The crew said they'd never seen one up so close before!
Everyone had too much fun, this is a tradition that will definitely continue.
