Day 12 A “Surprisingly” Abnormal Day

We began our day a whole hour later than normal. After listening to The Tape last night we were able to sleep until 7:30! Breakfast this morning was another abnormality, because the staff had a meeting, so we were left to cook french toast alone. After Marina, Rachel and Cha-Cha returned and ate their breakfast we went underway to Flinstone’s, West Dog. Once again we were back at Dog Islands. Both the Neptunes and Dolphins splashed in the water to go diving. It was just us and our buddies and no one got lost. The dive was quite exciting, in the first five minutes there was a huge turtle. After surfacing we set sail to Guana. Unfortunately about ten minutes in and before we were able to get the sails up, our starboard engine broke. This was no issues though because our talented staff and myself, your skipper of the day, acted fast. With all hands on deck we got our sails up and sailed wing-on-wing, reaching our location and home for the night, Guana. Cha-Cha immediately jumped in to check the anchor line and came up in pain. With a marine biologist and the head of the dolphin program on board, we concluded that there were diatoms in the water. AKA tiny squid looking things that poke you. And they were everywhere! After waiting for these unusual creatures to leave, we jumped in the water, snorkel gear and all. This is the location of tonights night dive and our last night dive before we receive our night diver specialty. And this one we do by ourselves, just my buddy and myself. To top off this abnormally, awesome day, we get brownookies for dessert!!

Much love, MK
