Scuba Diving at Lake Murray (Oklahoma)

Saturday, I went scuba diving at Lake Murray with Robby, Alex, and Tucker. This was my first time to dive in a lake, and maybe my last too! Visibility was very low - I plowed into the lake floor a couple of times (no, not with my head, but with my legs) which only made the visibility worse! We followed a line that took us from the surface down to different platforms and eventually to a sunken boat and motorcycle. Supposedly, there were two sunken boats. I only remember one, so I'm thinking I saw the other but didn't realize what it was!
After that we went along the rocks by the shoreline. Robby had a flash light that he used to peer into dark cavites with. I was kind of dreading and kind of hoping that a catfish would pop out. Alex and Tucker were funny too. I guess Tucker stuck his hand into a hole to "try his hand" at noodling. Alex happened to be on the other side and saw Tucker's wigging fingers. Alex said it scared him!

"Trying his hand at noodling" is very funny. Nice wetsuit. Ashley never did give us a wetsuit shot although she did tell me about trying to put her suit on in the middle of a parking lot in Hawaii.

Lou! It was behind a little wall in the middle of a parking lot. Gosh I am blushing!

Jesse looks 1,000,000x better in hers than I do in mine. I look like a whale in mine.

Jesse do you have your own stuff?

Do you guys ever play "X-Men" when you have those suits on? Tell the truth.

Sorry Ashley, Maybe that sounded odd. I know you were wearing swimming attire and putting on a wet suit is very normal. I bet you are really cute in your wetsuit, but I was only teasing you about showing us pics.

I nearly hyperventilated putting that wetsuit on! I was changing in one of those campsite bathrooms. It was really hot, and I was trying to hurry, so the guys didn't have to wait so long. Then I got my feet stuck in the legs, and my hands stuck in the sleeves, I could barely pull it up around my shoulders. It was miserable!

No, I didn't play X-men - I couldn't move! But it sounds like fun!

And no, I don't have any of my own gear. I rented everything including the mask which I'm sure was sanitized ;)
