      So I did not even know there was such a thing as a visitor message? Anyway, I just got your message from Christmas? I am always late, appparently. Sure, I remember you and the Sea Inn as well. It seems you are doing good down in the Keys. I am all over the ;lace, but having fun.

      Hey there, JB.

      No need to "come clean" re: Innerspace. I sort of suspected you weren't affiliated with them, given that you and the captain didn't seem to really know each other. It really doesn't matter, other than that we were soooo pleased that you were there to work with us!

      We're busy doing a 6-session winter skills workshop series with our dive shop and it's great to be able to get in the pool and forget about winter and prepare for warmer water. Last week we swam around without our masks, doffed and donned our gear underwater (a little trickier with the bungied backup--good to practice), air sharing drills, etc. Fun stuff!

      Hope all is well down in the Keys

      Hey JB!

      Great to get your note. Dan and I just got back to Buffalo last night and are already wishing we were back in the Keys. We managed one more dive trip on Christmas morning to the Benwood and French Reef when the winds settled down a bit--still lots of rolling waves and surge, but a couple of great dives. I was glad to have the Bonine--there were some green looking divers on that boat! We met a couple of guys from Canada that live just up the road, so that was fun too. We saw a spotted drum, which was a new and beautiful fish for us at French Reef.

      I'm glad you contacted me because Dan and I were hoping to figure out how to get in touch with you to thank you again. We both learned a ton and agreed that you are the best instructor we've ever had!

      Hope you had a great holiday season!
