Jacques Cousteau, The Famous Diver, Was Born This Day, 107-Years Ago; June 11, 1910.

I always liked and admire Jacques — and what was there, ever, not to like. I used to watch the “The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau“, in the 1970s, with undisguised fascination. Diving is not my thing. I swim and I like to swim but coming from the island nation of Ceylon I did not learn to swim until I left Ceylon aged 14! So, while I do swim, near daily in the Summer, it is not something that comes naturally to me. Diving is another matter. I have no issue with snorkeling, though it is something I rarely do. Going way down in the water does not appeal! So, I lived vicariously through Jacques.


Today’s so called ‘open-circuit’ scuba technology
was created by Jacques in the 1940s.
