On a normal day I was swimming towards shore once. I saw the bottom suck out. It was too deep for that. I turned. A giant
wave was almost on me. I saw a drop of water the size of a baseball fall from the top to the face. The water tension was so
great that it made no ripple or splash when it hit the face of the wave. It was right on me. The wave passed and broke. There
were two more behind it. I had scuba on. I headed for the bottom and swam towards the wave as fast as I could. I grabbed the
bottom and hung on. All I remember was was flying through the water telling myself to breath. I came out of it and made it to
shore. My mask was gone, my backpack was broken and my leg was twisted. We call that an adventure.
Enjoy the diving, seahunt
