scuba diving

Divers are continuing the search for missing passengers around the wreck of a boat that was destroyed by a fire in the early hours of Monday off the coast of California. Emergency personnel have so far recovered 25 bodies. The scuba diving vessel Conception was on a three-day excursion and was moored off the coast of Santa Cruz Island when the blaze started. Five crew members were able to escape.

It took me a week to get used to the environment, as even though I liked the food, I struggled to eat much, though I soon got my appetite back to its usual size once I had adjusted to the climate and my malaria pills.
