Fail 1: Scuba Diving







Although I'm a little bit claustrophobic and afraid of water, I intended to go scuba diving for the first time during our trip to the Florida Keys. 

There was this one place with the underwater Christ statue I wanted to see at Pennekamp State Park. You can view it here at the Florida Keys Official Tourism Site.


Sadly, my research was clear--scuba diving, because of the pressure of the water and the compacted tank air, is a potentially fatal idea, especially with my unstable asthma symptoms. 

As one person put it, scuba diving with asthma is like trying to snort molasses through a straw. 

No thank you. I'll stick to snorkeling.
