Twice.


A friend told me the first time didn't count as I didn't know what to expect and I had to do it again ....

Not sure if that was daring or stupid... :wink:

And I am terrified of heights.....
That is awesome, Connie!!! I want to do that one day!

I guess my most daring thing was learning to SCUBA dive when I was about 26 and had moved to Mount Pleasant, S.C., near a SCUBA store. We did our certification dive in the murky Cooper River, with about 12 inch visibility. That was the daring part. When you stretched your arm out you couldn't see your fingers! I went to the bottom and picked up a huge shark tooth the size of my hand, the likes of which I've seen in displays since for sale for $1,000. I dropped it when an eel came at me from the murkiness, a huge eel like you see in aquariums hiding in the rocks. :o

That was my last time I went SCUBA diving. Not that I wouldn't again, I just didn't know anyone who would dive with me. Now, I'd have to relearn everything.

I would never , ever, never dive in the Cooper River! :o

I know the people that did the study on the OLD bridge, and the pilings....The stories they told me are enough to stop me from going in that water...No way!

Pretty cool, Bonnie.....
