I'm glad you understand. My intention was simply to inform you - we all had to learn. Where did you get certified and do you do u/w photography?
ScubaLdy, Thanks again for clarification. I was originally certified in college (Slippery Rock State U) in 1977, but have not done any diving for over 20 years. I re-certified this past Spring, with class/pool work in CT and did my certification dives through BDS in CC. I anticipate that I will be doing some purely amateur u/w photography, but certainly nothing more than that, once we are on the island full-time.
dabunk - I am aware of the employment regulations in Belize and, as a retiree, have no plans, or interest, in working anywhere any time soon. Might I suggest using a bit more "tact" in your reply posts, they seem to come across, at least to me, very "terse" and "condescending" (maybe not the best adjectives, but the ones that come to mind at present)....just a suggestion/thought so that your information is taken in the vain I imagine you wish to provide.
