100 Feet Under

If you know me well enough, you won't be surprised
to hear that there was no way I was going to miss a free birthday dive offered by our local dive shop! Karyn and I dropped a hundred feet down to visit the Tokai Maru, a Japanese freighter that wandered into the Apra Harbor here on Guam toward the end of WWII; a few torpedoes later it became a dive site for people like us. The unique thing about this site is that a WWI German ship lays perpendicular to it, having met the same fate about thirty years prior. It's the only spot in the world where you can touch two wrecks from two different wars at the same time, in 83 degree water to boot. Here are three pictures to enjoy.

Diving with Karyn AND visiting history. Sounds like the ideal Pastor Eric birthday.
Happy 4__th!
