I've always loved the water but at the same time been afraid of it. You hear summer horror stories from friends who've stepped on sea urchins, gotten jelly fish stings or totally sunburnt! Which is why, as a kid, I would always stick close to shore.
But being married to a certified water baby meant that I had to love the water as much as hubby did. So that meant conquering my fear and actually getting my feet wet.
I thought I was getting better at it until I saw Hubby free dive. He looked so free and agile in the water. Totally removed from the lanky clumsy guy he is on shore! So, I told myself I'd learn how to free dive as well too.
So slowly I learned how to equalize, got comfortable wearing a weight belt and accustomed to using long fins. It wasnt easy especially if you're like me who no matter what would float! (Yes high fat content??)
Steadily I got better at it so much that I unlocked the deepest I've ever gone -- 60 feet. Let me break that down for you, sixty feet is equal to the height of a six storey building! Yes THAT tall! I was pretty amazed myself after I finally reached the surface and looked at the depth gauge on my arm. To go that far down on a single breath of air was quite a feat for me!
And amazed the hubby as well!
So in celebration, Im adding a sheet of calligraphed "beach sayings" in honor of that epic dive. You can crop them up to add to images like what I did above. Or crop one that speaks to you and enlarge it for a print you can frame at home. Or make gift tags for friends like the one below.
Hope you have fun!! Also, dont forget to tag me in IG (@sab_reynoso) or send me a shout out if you'll be using it. I want to see all the creative stuff you guys come up with. Also the file is background-less (saved in .png format) already making it easier for you to layer it on awesome photos.
