No, thats not the Little Mermaid and Posieden you're looking at. Yes, I know, we do cut quite the figure under the water. And yes, hahaha, we do manage to make goggles sexy.
Aside from how dorky we look (everyone looks like this diving so shut up), I must mention that this photo was taken inside a cave, which was freezing cold inside but amazing to be in, particularly where the sunlight met the darkness.
We managed to see an octopus also, but I had been warned by the instructors not to "go fishing" whilst down there, so there was no calimari that night.
The pic on the left is one where Jess is actually moving around a bit. I think I annoyed her the whole time, as I was always darting all over the place whilst she had to constantly crane her neck trying to keep an eye on me. What are you supposed to do when you're diving, sit still??
All good though, we made it out alive, and it was great fun (yes, I'm a big dork, I was caught up in the moment)
The seafood was amazing, and after spending a small fortune we had well and truly had our fill.
Bobby had also let Borris know of our celebrations, and had one of his waitresses bring out a massive cake after the meal. Needless to say we couldn't finsish it (if everyone wasn't looking I would have had a crack...), so we shared it with all of the patrons after they had all sang us 'Happy Birthday'- a really fun night.
Jess had also bought a new pair of bathers whilst in Croatia, and gave them a bit of a test run in the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic. We had been for a swim at Dubrovnik, but the water was FREEZING there. At Vela Luka however, the water was awsome, and as I said, so clear.
Here is a view of the bay which runs up into the quiet little town of Vela Luka. There were many international and local yachts running in and out, making for a beautiful setting to a few days of rest and relaxation.
We will add another post next with the pics from our dives- it was fantastic!

More photo's to come, this internet is horribly and painfully slow and annoying!
