Today we started out diving with the open water students again, yet this time was different because it was their first real time diving experience out in the open ocean! It was really interesting to see how some of them reacted, usually either nervous, excited, or both, reminding us all of how we were when we were first learning to dive (before we acquired all of our awesome dive skills). We all have been doing daily tank runs, and all of us are basically bodybuilders now from all that heavy tank lifting! Although the work can be both physically and mentally difficult, it is definitely going to be work it in the long run! After a full day of diving we had what is known as summer thanksgiving for dinner, which is just like an ordinary thanksgiving at home with turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, etc. Except this time instead of eating with our families at home we ate with our boat which is now a new family to us all. Overall it has been a great day and we cannot wait to see what is in store for us tomorrow!
