I have been lurking in this fine forum awhile. I have been a regular contributor over at Scubadiving.com for several years, but thought I would expand my horizons a bit and play here too.

I am another cold water junkie - fortunate enough to live only a few hours from the wild & wonderful diving at Nanaimo, Campbell River and Port Hardy. However, even a hardy West Coast Canuckian kind of chick needs a warm fix every now and then, so I regularly strain/drain the bank account with adventures afar.

I've met a few of the regulars here (most recently the ever-entertaining Simon Buxton, who DM'd a recent trip aboard the Archipelago Adventurer II from Ambon to Banda) and recognize quite a few names.

My (non-commercial) website is Awoosh.com. I enjoy sharing my experiences via multiimedia shows and photoessays, so if armchair diving is your bag, hopefully you will find something there to entertain you a bit.

Nice to see you over here, Judy!

I have no doubt that you'll make as many fine contributions to www.wetpixel.com as you have made over the years at www.scubadiving.com.

Cheers,

hi Judy welcome to WP.


Thanks Mike.

You must be the first to have ever called Simon "entertaining" :D


Oh, there are other adjectives, but I thought I better play nice as new kid in the sandbox ;^) I'm sure as his sometime roomie you are well aware of his particularities and peccadillos :D Seriously, he was a great Cruise Director. Our group had a blast (Simon's pom pom dances notwithstanding :D )

I'd like to have been a fly on the wall (well, maybe not really a fly - they're yucky) when Simon downloaded about our motley crew... ;^)

Which part of Vancouver are you from?


I was born and grew up here, and have lived on the North Shore, in Kits, Marpole, South Granville and Richmond, as well as living for a halcyon year overseas (Switzerland - I wuz a ski nut in my salad years). Currently, the mountains are in my back yard :^) What about you?
