Slow progress - but it's pretty

It's been a while since I posted an update on our beach villa project.  That doesn't mean that nothing is happening, rather we are working through a few things like choosing architects, putting in roads & electricity, and sub-dividing land.  Riveting reading for future posts.

This time I thought I'd share a few of the pics from our June visit when we went diving.  Michael and I are new to diving. We only completed our PADI Open Water certificates late last year.  When we did our training it was in Sydney and just a little bit too cold for me.  I did enjoy it - but not as much as I'd hoped as I'm a Queensland girl and just don't cope being cold at all.  While we were up visiting the site of our future villa we decided to take advantage of the warmer water and get some practice in.  We even upskilled and completed our PADI Advanced Open Water certificate.  I must admit I enjoyed diving a lot more in warmer waters.  I was more relaxed, ready to have fun, and much more willing to try out new skills.  Our instructors were great and overall it was a wonderful experience.  We had so much fun we even went back and did a few extra dives while we were there.

I'm really looking forward to having more time in Nilaveli when the villa is complete so we can continue to dive and explore the world from a different vantage point.  Hopefully we'll be able to convince some of our friends to join us in our new hobby too.

















Thanks for stopping by.
