The trip of a lifetime ? so easily said. But this was it! To be among the ?icons? of the underwater world. Stan Waterman, Val and Ron Taylor ? those who showed the way and whose enthusiasm and love of adventure has never dimmed. Thank you seven seas for the magic. Thank you cap?n Mark for fine seamanship, the patience and kindness to forgive my mistakes (no more deep dives!!) and your generosity. A great boat, a great crew, fantastic diving? and so much fun and laughter. How lucky Patrice and I were to be part of it. Everyday was a gift.
