Yes, readers, a SCUBA DIVING CLUB. That is just too cool!
I have not had a chance to talk with the organizers other than to ask if I could use their photographs but my friend who is a formerly certified scuba diver sent me some info about this group.
So I asked him for a simple quote and he says:
“Many people say there are no things to do here in Laredo, but there are. It’s just a matter of getting in touch with others so that events and clubs, like the Laredo Scuba Diving Club, can be brought to life.”
Of course, that was after he said, “We have battled catanes as large as (deleted because I will be accused of being mean to this person again – ha!)…” and the reason I won’t use his name. He made me laugh though, so I had to include it.
Their website is fairly new and a work in progress but check out some of their photos below. None of these were taken in our Rio Grande during a flood – they travel to better, more interesting and much clearer waters for exploration 🙂
And the group so far:
