Kendall’s Open Water class

Kendall Bedford has long been a valuable asset to our dive team. Although until now she has been too young to actually dive she has been a real trooper in providing surface support… not many other 11 year old girls would carry stage bottles through snow and ice to the water for us on training dives in January… Well now she is 12 and her diving career has begun. I was fortunate to attend her first day of open water checkout dives on July 7, 2007. Until I get her report, I’ll let the pictures do the talking…
