    Nice! I completed my open water dive certification in Carter Lake by Berthoud. Your conditions look way better than mine did!

    Yes it was great. We stayed at Iberostar. They have a Dressel Dive Shop right on site. So we did everything without even having to leave the Hotel. We chose to go see Tulum and Chichen Itza while we were there, but not having to drive to the Marina every day saved us quite a bit of time.

    I did mine in Carter too, didn't see a single fish in 2 days and the thermocline there was brutal.

    I think I we saw some crayfish at the bottom. And a boot, I remember seeing a boot.

    A boot huh? I wonder what the story behind that was.

    Looked like an old leather work boot. All I know is it didn't have any decaying body parts attached to it :) Lots of old beer and soda cans too. Maybe that's how they used to party at Carter Lake? This was probably 1997/98.

    How scary would that be, to dive for the first time and find a dead body?
