Ahoy, most succulent peeps!
Once upon a time your handsome narrator went down to the glorious island of Bimini to swim with sharks.
And swim with sharks I did.
In Bimini you can readily free dive with Caribbean reef sharks and nurse sharks; fine animals to be sure. If you want to get REALLY sexy with sharks, sharks like hammerheads, you need to be SCUBA certified.
I was not SCUBA certified so no hammers for me. Womp womp!

When I departed Bimini without diving with hammers I declared a blood oath on the name of my forefathers which I had forgotten that I would get my SCUBA certification and one day return to Bimini to spoon with hammers.
Okay, maybe that was a bit dramatic, but I did recognize that I missed out on a cool opportunity because I wasn’t SCUBA certified.
So, I did what anyone with a lust to see hammerheads in the wild would do – I got an intro NAUI SCUBA certification,I did.
Getting a SCUBA certification is all well and good, but in order for sweet sharky destiny to manifest I had to kick a few more actions into gear.
And kick those actions into gear I did…
Travel has been booked to Bimini for the weekend that is nigh.
A dive with hammerheads with Neal Watson’s Bimini Scuba Center has been scheduled.
IT IS HAPPENING!!

And the morale of this story is…
Recognize when an awesome opportunity is being denied to you because you weren’t ready, set a plan to rectify the situation, and carry it out.
If a 3/4 daft monkey like me can do it then so can you.
