So my 75 year old dad has decided to get scuba certified so he can dive with my son and I in St. Lucia.
I have some trepidation over this as when I'm down there, I'm already keeping an eye on my son and now will have to watch him too - and he'll be a beginner. He's not the most easy-going guy either, so I wonder how tense he'll be and if he'll make others (specifically me) tense too.
The good thing is that my son is actually really comfortable under the waves and actually did better than me down below when we were in St. Thomas in terms of oxygen consumption - which means he was relaxed. Still my kid though and you never stop feeling responsible or watching out for them.
I hope it goes smoothly as pops is excited to join us.
