We stopped at the History of Diving Museum in Islamorada, Fl on a whim. As with about 70% of whims, it turned out to be a good idea. (Don’t ask about the 0ther 30%, though.)
The first thing that I saw when I stepped out of the RV was this beautiful hibiscus. They’re all over Florida and I finally snapped a picture of one.
Once inside the museum, we saw all kinds of equipment from the development of diving. I’m so glad that I’m using the light, modern scuba equipment!
A cool mask; please ignore the grammar error in the label.
This exhibit slightly terrifies me. It takes a brave and confident person to wear homemade SCUBA equipment.
An underwater scene. The figures were eerily life-like.
Especially since you can’t really see a face of a scuba diver anyway.
The ones that didn’t look like creepy humans looked like the inspiration for the next Star Wars movie.
But even Star Wars extras deserve love!
It was a fun museum – lots of information and interesting diving pieces.
