One Time, In Paradise

We woke up bright and early this morning to motor to the Rhone, today’s dive site. Shortly after arriving many of my shipmates took the theoretical exam to prove that they had learned all they needed to know in order to run a boat. After taking the test we hopped into the dinghy and made our way to the dive site. Snorkeling the Rhone was an amazing and an unforgettable experience. When we returned to the boat we had delicious chicken salad sandwiches and prepared for our next rotation, the hike. Thankfully this hike wasn’t as strenuous as our first one. The feeling of accomplishment was just as rewarding though. The view from the top of the hill we climbed was so beautiful. You could see everything from the islands far away to the other boats just like ours right below us. The chefs made a yummy meal for us that was probably my favorite so far. During dinner we talked about what the top thing to do on our bucket list is, mine being traveling to Australia. It’s weird to think that we only have two more days together. We’ve all grown so close. Today might have been my favorite day. Everything was perfect and I’m going to miss it so much when I leave in two weeks.
