I have to laugh because as I’ve mentioned before I have my Medieval British Literature class on Tuesday nights. I go home from there, go to bed, get up in the morning and come to Extreme Sports Scuba for my internship this spring. As you’ve noticed a couple times I’ve told you something from the previous nights class and it always cracks me up that it can work it’s way into these posts. Well last night didn’t let me down… So we were reading a book, talking about Great Britain and Little Britain. Do you know what was considered Little Britain? It was a British colony across the English Channel on the coast of France called Brittany. Now how can I work this in to today’s post you ask? Well today I want to introduce you to Brittany Renfro. Ah, makes sense now? Gotta love school and I hope that these posts can be both educational in the sense that you learn something plus you get to meet some of the fantastic people we dive with, so let’s get started with this interview, shall we? Let me introduce Brittany Renfro.

Haven’t made one this year. Going to try to get at least 6 dives in this year, but I hope to get many more!
