Extreme Diver Interview – Lee Lake

If you’ve ever been on facebook any amount of time, you’ll sometimes see people posting questions, Answer with one word how we met. So this next diver I’m going to introduce the blog to  I could say Scuba Diving but that’s 2 words. Or I could say Diving. But to be more Specific I could say Mermet Springs (woops 2 words again) so we could just say Mermet, but the true answer would be September 2013 at Mermet Springs. That was the summer that my husband and I got certified so there were still a bunch of people left to meet and Mark Willoughby made me make a lasting impression. Lee Lake and Mark were picking on each other or something and I was told to go over and pinch him. You guessed it, I did and I should say the rest is history? (And for the record… I don’t always just walk up and pinch people I don’t know!) Since then we’ve gotten to know Lee really well and now I’d like to introduce the rest of Extreme Sports Scuba family to Lee Lake.
