Day 10- The Vega’s Open Water Dive
Posted: Fri, Jul 17, 2015
Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
Today, once again, began with a bright and early wake-up at 6am. We then enjoyed a delicious breakfast of bagels and yogurt. Afterwards we went straight to diving, which excitingly is the first open water dive. It was a beautiful dive at the incredible Mountain Point. After the Vegas surfaced the regaled the advanced divers with their tales. My favorite quotes from them include “yeah, I saw like 8 turtles,” “wow! that was easier than I thought,” and my personal favorite “I’m pretty sure I could be advanced, it’s just breathing air.” After that the rest of the day was rotations including a guy vs. girl Pico race and mooring practice. After all of this we had an incredible Thanksgiving dinner, which regardless of the fact that it is mid-July was awesome. We ended the day with full bellies and happy minds.
