Do you have a hobby? It’s one of the best things you can have. No joke.
My definition of hobby: Something you love to do, that gets you moving, makes you forget about your stresses, makes you laugh, makes you have something to get better at, gives you goals, and it really really makes you happy, even without you realizing it.

To be blunt, they are a pretty big deal.

One of my favorites is golfing. As long as it’s at a course that doesn’t have a strict dress code. Then it’s an extra sweet hobby. If it’s a course where I can go barefoot and wear a bikini, an über sweet one.

So, if you don’t have one, giddy up. It’s time to go out and play.

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
For those of you using an underwater housing, ever have trouble with water spots? to get that perfect half-in-half-out photo, without water spots, the best thing to do is use your spit! It sounds gross…but it works! Spit on the housing’s port and give it a good lick to distribute the spit!
