Thank you JAWS for scaring the crap out of everyone!  Still. Even if just a Hollywood Film, sharks are big and have crazy ragged teeth. So why on earth would I decide to get into diving then you ask? Well, it's simple. I have always loved nature. From the forest animals to the ocean, to microscopic life. I have always enjoyed seeing the beauty of creation. I guess it's the...
