    Now imagine this..... you've just flown to a totally foreign country where you don't even speak the language and entrust your life to this girl you've just met to take you down to the bottom of the sea. Muhahahaha!

    most of the time when i entrust my life to women i've just met, i wake up in a bathtub full of ice with a pain in my side, and a note written in my own blood that says: "get to the hospital".

    but maybe that's just me.
    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Faye just posted this to her Facebook page (in bold below). I thought I would re-post it here just to give everyone who hasn't been to Utila a sense of what the place is like, and why people are only half-joking when they say "You will never want to leave Utila!" She's been there 10 years, is only just now leaving, and even then she admits its probably only a temporary reprieve...

    It was only supposed to be a fling. 2 weeks of fun, lighthearted and frivolous- then I'd move on with my plans to explore South America. Instead I fell deeper into you.

    I don't regret giving you the last decade. I won't even regret the arguments, the kill-me-know hangovers, the frustration of living on a baleada a day. I will never regret the beautiful, misshapen, souls who have shared a drink, a laugh or a tear with me. I thank you for the ones that will continue to be written into the chapters of Faye yet to come and the dear ones who's book is already closed.

    Like all good relationships, you have helped me grow, kept me close while giving me space.You gave a 19 year old, city kid, confidence (maybe too much) and let me figure out who I am. You have anxiously watched me make some questionable choices and held my hand when I needed extra strength to lunge onto the next step of Fayeocity.

    I love your reefs, I love your sunsets and rises, I love you from the depths of CJ's Drop Off to the towering volcano (all of 72m) that is Pumpkin Hill and maybe even a couple of the billions of sandflies too! You're beautiful when your sunshine smiles through the surface of Duppy Waters, and just as bewitching when you are throwing a rainy season tantrum and give us moody skies to grab a Salva and get lost in.

    You've watched me leave 'for good' twice and for love or adventure countless times and have always welcomed me home with open arms. As always, I know it will take but hours for me to miss you and this time it's only see you later. We just need a little break, so that when I come back next year we can fall back in love all over again.

    So long Utila and thanks for all the fish!


    She topped that off with this final picture:

    She will be missed by many, of that I have no doubt! Sure wish she would have stayed for Caribb-LEM Mark 3, but at least some of us got the chance to meet (and dive) with her. Maybe by the time Caribb-LEM 4 happens she will be back.

    If you are thinking of applying for the Global Entry/TSA Pre program, don't wait too long. Mine is approved but the first available interview appointment for fingerprinting/photo etc., for me is the day after Christmas at 3:30pm at Philadelphia International Airport.

    No, not married life. I'll just leave it at that.
