My trip to St George's Caye Resort was one of the greatest adventures of my life. Before the trip, I looked forward to being on this charming island and photographing everything from beached boats, seagulls surrounding the docks, coconut trees and exotic plants, enjoy kayaking and sailing, but, never did I imagine myself diving into the unknown depths with a heavy tank on my back, knowing zero about diving equipment and safety measures. So, to my great surprise, and the astonishment of my hosts, and with the encouragement of the expert divers, I braved the waters (on a sandbar, first, where I felt safe) and broke through a barrier of fear that had held me back for too long. The third day of diving we descended to 45 feet and we saw images of beauty that I had thought I would only
see in photographs! Who knows, perhaps I will become an under-water photographer, after all!
