Cavtat (pronounced TSav-tat)
Each day just outdoes the previous! Think Octopus! Under the sea! Yes - I went diving again and this rated as one of the best dives ever! It was a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky; Peter, from the dive shop picked us up at the port and drove us to the dive boat where they had our wetsuits and gear ready.
Our dive master did a masterful job, starting with descent into some rock formations, then over a cliff and descended on a wall. Then we swam through this long winding canyon; it was awesome! Then Damir started moving some hand sized rocks around and kind of scratching at the surface.
We swam to a new spot and Damir was sticking his hand under the rocks again. Hauling out rocks, this time a little bigger and more aggressively. After a couple of minutes he throws out this lump - a pretty big octopus (like the size of a small umbrella), and he looks pretty pissed! The octo inked us a couple of times, then kind of settled on a rock, and Damir starts petting him. It was crazy! The three of us just hung suspended in the water mesmerized by this freak of nature.
You know when you surface and yell out 'Woo Hooo!!!' that its been a great dive. I could not wipe the smile off my face for the rest of the day!
