#3 INCOMPLETE – Dive With Sharks ~ Hawaii

Our New Dive Gear!

January 4, 2013 was supposed to be the day we completed the 3rd item on our While We’re Alive list.  Unfortunately, the week we just spent on Oahu consisted of rain, high wind warnings, rain, rough seas, rain, and ultimately the cancelation of our cage dive with North Shore Shark Adventures.

After receiving the terrible news, we couldn’t help but sit and feel bad for ourselves, wondering when we’ll get the chance again to dive with sharks with the safety of a steel barrier.  We were so ridiculously excited to complete this one, especially having gone out and bought our own dive masks and snorkels for the first time!

But then, we saw the most stunning rainbow we can ever remember seeing, and realized life really wasn’t all that bad, and perhaps the shark dive just wasn’t meant to be.

Then we thought to ourselves, “Holy s***, Hawaii really does get a lot of rainbows!  It’s no wonder they’ve put them on their license plates.”  :)

Another Stunning Rainbow in Honolulu Hawaii!

    I use to live there and have many fond memories of Hawaii . . . Likewise, I have some WTF moments as well, e.g., 1st day of school – after moving from Sunnyvale, California to Oahu, Hawaii – most of the students in my 8th grade class, locked the Science teacher in a broom closet . . . for the entire period. Ha.

    Anywho, good post . . . I have my own shark story on my blog you may or may not be interested. Take care and good luck!

      Haha! That broom closet story made us laugh outright!
      We’re both teachers, and can honestly say nothing nearly that bad has ever happened to us. Too funny!

      Enjoyed your shark story! Our first step is getting in with the sharks. Then, perhaps we’ll rub their bellies!

        As I am certain you’re both aware, SCUBA diving is much more fun than snorkeling. You guys should still try to do that cage dive if at all possible.

        By the by, another “WTF” moment in Hawaii was living on the beach for 3 days because my Mom got in a fight with her roommate (who was alcoholic). We had a perfect suburban home in California, yet we are living on the beach? My brother and I were beside ourselves. LOL.

      First world problems is right. Really puts things into perspective when you think about it!
