Cliffside Palm, 16 x 12 oil

I am REALLY buoyant.   That's just how it is.  Today I got a weight belt for snorkeling. With my magical weights, I am neutral at the surface, my mask rising and falling above the waterline as I breathe.  Trouble is, when I free dive, I take in a big breath, and I am once again buoyant.  I don't really think I want so much weight that I am negatively buoyant when I breathe out, that just doesn't seem safe.  Today I experimented with breathing some of my air out.  Better underwater, but when I came up I didn't have enough juice to clear my snorkel.  This is going to be a tricky balancing act.
