90 Second Escape: Six-Foot Vis

Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.

Today’s 90-Second Escape: Six-Foot Vis

On a hike Sunday, my friend Bill mentioned that he lived in Rollesville. Being an active type, I asked if he was a scuba diver as well; that was the one thing he wasn’t. But he was intrigued to know that there was a premier dive training facility right in his backyard, the Fantasy Lake Scuba Park.

I told Bill a little about the lake — about the rock crusher, CAT bus and airplane on the bottom, about the fish (and occasional turtle), about the thermocline. One thing I had trouble conveying, though, was just what the lake is like below the surface. Then I remembered this video, shot a couple years ago as I was researching “Adventure Carolinas.”

So Bill, and anyone else interested in diving the depths of Fantasy Lake, here’s a 90 Second plunge.
