Today we got up to Nick (the skipper) playing a highly annoying track on the radio that he wouldn’t stop playing until all of us were on deck. Breakfast was oatmeal and Chris tried it for the second time on the voyage and found out that he actually did like it. After breakfast we sailed to Brewer’s Bay to do a dive called the Pinnacles. It was an amazing dive! It had huge pillars of coral and the visibility was spectacular. Then we sailed over to a dive site called the Playgrounds. We didn’t think it was possible but this dive was even better than the last one! There were so many different varieties of fish and we saw a barracuda and various other marine organisms. For lunch we had tortilla soup. Ben, my dive instructor, and Nick did a panicked and unconscious diver scenario for Panasea, the rescue boat. Nick started flailing around in the water and it took the rescue divers at least 3 minutes to spot him. The rest of the afternoon was spent just chilling out and then it was time for the beach barbeque. When we got there we immediately mingled with the other boats whilst sharing funny stories and eating burgers and hot dogs. Later when it got dark we lit an epic bonfire and just sat with our friends talking. Tomorrow sounds like it is going to be incredible and the dinner is Mexican, my favorite. I think it is just getting better and better each day.
