We went to the outer reef again today and I loved it! At first I kind of hated it because we got dropped in the middle of a strong current that we had to fight against to get where we wanted. I think I got shinsplint in one leg, which isn't even possible in the water! But once we got out of the evil current, everything was amazing.
I (accidentally) ran into three people on the swim today. Oops. The first was Tibble, one of the videographers. To be fair, we ran into each other. Next was Josh. I swam under to video and just didn't look to see if anyone was where I surfaced. Then I ran into Carly. Same thing as with Josh, but this time I headbutted her. Luckily the wetsuits and water make a buffer, so nobody was harmed! Apparently I haven't really grown out of my bull in a china shop habits.
Being here makes me wish I was one of the characters from H2O. Wouldn't it be so cool to not have to come up for air or (unsuccessfully) equalize your ears when diving? I unashamedly admit that I'd love to sprout a tail sometimes.
We had our specied I.D. test today and everyone did pretty well. Glad that's out of the way!
Instead of going on the optional sunset snorkel, I decided to watch the sun set from the Jetty and take some pictures. This sure is a beautiful place!
We had chocolate cake tonight in celebration of Susie's birthday. Pat worked wonders again! Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and cream-custard drizzled on top.
Still loving it here and learning lots. Oh, I almost fell asleep in the lecture today. It was about Reef Fishes and super interesting, but I just get so worn out here! I stood up for a while again and managed to pay attention and stay awake. Yay Holly!
