KSC Grand Cayman Parent Poems Wk 2 2010

There once were twins named Sallee
Who returned to Kids Sea Camp with their Dadee

Liam and Eliza their name
Seal Team their game
Grand Cayman their home for a week

We awoke each day with a wonderful glow
Some even woke to a rooster’s crow

My wake up was even more of a gas
I awoke each morning to Cathy Wakely’s laugh

Liam and Eliza’s first ocean dive made daddy quite proud
He tried not to jump up and scream and shout

Though to his surprise they thought the dive a bit drab
and were more focused on collecting their personal
menagerie of hermit crabs

We embarked each day on a boat called Tenata
but were forced when diving to space ourselves
like a well written sonata

while we dove with our best enthusiasm and luster
we lived in constant fear of Pats dreaded sign for “cluster”

Dot art was once again in the air
even Laims face was adorned
Under the masterful guidance of Rogest
maritime masterpieces were born

Though he borrowed my daddy’s glasses to see
Kids Sea Camp was precisely where he wanted to be
And all the kids flocked to this pied piper from xon
For as Liam and Eliza say, everybody loves Ron

And so as we conclude a wonderful week
Affirm commitment is what we seek

We shout it out for all to hear
Please meet us again at Kids Sea Camp next year

The Time of our Lives

Come on kids lets go
It’s time to go see Margo

Lock the doors turn off the lamp
We’re going to Kids Sea Camp

It’s going to be a blast
We only wish it could last

We have all come by car, plane, and boat
I pray to God we will all float

It’s time to dive and what the heck
Let’s do it at DiveTech

Yes, Rogest
The Turtles think you’re the best

The Seals will always remember
The time they spent with September

The Adventure Divers will certainly miss
The time they spent diving with Chris

The Open Water Divers will definitely rally
Being certified by Sally

Lee will be beaming with glee
When the teens set him free

Happy Birthday Arie, you deserve a toast
As you are the kings of Cobalt Coast

We will all be sad when we say our goodbyes
But we want you to know, we had the time of our lives!

Grand Cayman or bust! Was the family cry
As we boarded the plan for the Caribbean idle

We loved Roatan and were ready to try
Kids Sea Camp again – SCUBA diving was high

Warm days, good food, and skills that are new
Jack and Tom don dive gear and shout “Scuba-do!”

Into the ocean they go for the buoyancy test
And on the dock leading the Turtles is Ronnie Rogest

Sea scooters at last…..don’t want to stop
Tarpon, turtles and Jack fish….the kids zip over the top

Beach party, tug of war and real pirates too
Class work, cameras….so much to learn and do.

Photo dive…awesome…big smile all around
The teens come ashore…happy chatter abound

Stingrays, Puffer fish…all try to flee
Kids Sea Camp rocks, that’s plain to see!

Night snorkeling, night diving…how can you top this?
Cobalt Coast and Dive Tech left nothing amiss

Thank you Margo and all for a wonderful trip
One day left, then we pack up, to home we’ll all go

On a Cobalt Coast eve I awoke with a start
Looked out the door and saw Ron with his art

A squish, a splash, a dot and a squiggle
All added up to make me giggle

Eight canvases were started and all under way
They were for Margo, Robbie, Jen, and Richard
along with Arie, Dora, Nancy and Jay

with a twinkle in his eye,I heard Ron say
Happy Kids Sea Camp to all and to all a good night.

Were back at Kids Sea Camp for us #5
Every moment’s been great, it’s where
our kids learn to dive

When I tell people we go to a camp where kids dive
Some look at me and ask, “are you sure they’ll survive?”

They can’t believe our kids are in the ocean with sharks
And are shocked to find out that we dive in the dark

For my kids this attitude is really quite tragic
For them diving is something that is truly magic

After each trip they can’t wait to do it again
But I guess it’s because they were all certified at 10

For my kids the ocean is the best place to be
After each dive they are amazed by all that they see

They realize the ocean must be protected and saved
For all other creatures under the waves

Thanks to Kids Sea Camp, Margo, Tom and Rogest
For making our summer vacations the best!

Barbara certified Tuesday at last
While the others had a blast
But to home fly she had
To be with her elderly dad
In our hearts we hold her there fast

Here we’ve dived twice a day
Drank smoothies like horses eat hay
Eat as we will, drink a good fill
Burned on our bottoms, they say!

The world is filled with oceans so vast, deep, and wide
A place the Gravelys love to go to swim, play, and dive

Mitch saw one swimming squid and then saw another
He got a little scared when he saw the squid’s big brother

Trevor found a rainbow fish so beautiful and big
It wasn’t like the hogfish who reminds him of a pig

Now Jordans hairs a frizzy mess and the sun has burned the rest
But she’ll always remember Kids Sea Camp in Cayman is the BEST

Sharee needed great dive instructors AND a push right off the boat
To figure out she best descend or spend too long afloat

Alans’ cuts and bruises couldn’t keep him from diving
So 7 days of saltwater plus 6 docs aboard kept him thriving

So we dive right in the water with our tanks so full of air
We know we’ll find so many friends with Kids Sea Camp helping us there

Diving

Diving:
blue sea’s, calm water, sandy bottom

Diving:
little cities made of coral, myriad fish, yellow,
blue, and black…..schools swimming in formation

Diving :
moray eels look out from a hole
green turtles glide gracefully by
regal lobsters snap their claws

Diving:
Blue seas, calm water, sandy bottom

Diving………………..

Dibble, dabble little dots
Make a fish of many spots

Thick globs of pushed paint
Sometimes a fish it ain’t

Good SCUBA, good foods
Makes many a happy dues
