Today us divemasters saw our progress pay off; taking our students on their first open water dives. I woke up to find melon, bagels and yogurt ready for breakfast. For the first rotation Dylan and I mapped out the dive site, some DMs dove with open water students, and others refreshed their oxygen provider skills with Simon. Second rotation Katja and I took two open water students on their first open water dive, and their excitement was priceless. When we surfaced we found Jules grilling some cheese, and gobbled it down like stuffing on Thanksgiving (or, you know, last night). We then did another rotation, with several of us avoiding the sun like the plague. After our rotation Simon surprised Surprise with the news that we would be taking the first half of our divemaster test after our chicken Caesar salad dinner and our squeeze. Thankfully the first half felt like pressing a Staples button, likely due to how good Simon, Katja, and Cha Cha are at teaching. After that we got some well earned sleep.
