Got up early before my alarm even went off at 8. What's wrong with you body! Had a very exciting breakfast of oats and yogurt, mmm. Finn walked round with me to some dive shops, they're all annoyingly nice which makes it really hard to pick one! Found a pretty cool one though, they said they'd give me a divemaster trainee as I have problems with my ears and they have free coffee! The one at my hotel us cheaper though so will check them out too. Got a water taxi to west bay beach which is gorgeous, the water is lush.

Met up with the other two girls from the dorm, Jaz and Yafit and just chilled in the water and on the floating platform until I had to go off and find food as I was surprisingly hungry after my massive and nutritious breakfast. Was desperate for an iced coffee so headed towards one which happened to be on the main road, I'd come from the beach in my bikini, awkward!

Went snorkelling afterwards which was freaking awesome. Probably the best I've ever done, so many fish and tons of coral, and literally two minutes from shore.?I had to verbally abuse a man who was snorkelling with his two kids though because I saw him touch the coral at least 5 times and not by accident but because he was a genuine fucktard. So I swam after him-

Me: RXCUSE ME!
(....)
Me: Oi!
(...he STANDS ON THE CORAL to listen to me)
Me: I don't want to spoil your fun bit you need to stop standing on the coral, you're destroying decades worth of growth in seconds
Him: Well I wouldn't have had touch it if you hadn't stopped me to say this
Me: O_O
Me: sir, this is not the first occasion I have seen you do it and funnily enough I am managing perfectly fine talking to you without destroying an ecosystem
(...he huffs off) -dick!

Seriously I love snorkelling and diving but I sometimes think it shouldn't be done anymore. I make damn sure I don't touch anything, other people don't give a shit, really pisses me off (and 80% of the worlds oxygen comes from reefs not trees!)
It's a shame he was wearing reef shoes so at least the coral lacerating his feet might have taught him.

Realised I was a bit burnt after snorkelling so we decided to head back, but not before two creepy men tried to buy us some ice cream. I told them we were all on a diet. They asked what we were doing tonight, I told them we were waxing ourselves (Jaz had been trying to get a wax all day). They seemed perplexed and left us alone! Being weird works!

Decided to go diving with the coconut tree place, even though it's $10 more per dive as they just seemed so much nicer/better than the dive shop (Native Sons) where I'm staying. The owner was annoyingly sarcastic and I just thought I'd get pissed off with him.

We all went out for Thai last night which (for my dish, massaman obviously!) cost me nearly $15! Ouch. Went for a drink after where we watched some olympics, gymnastics again, awesome! Me, Jaz and Yafit all said we were never really bothered by the olympics before but that we were actually really enjoying it and were sad we weren't in England to experience it. Saying that you guys probably don't care and wish you were here! Unfortunately the programming was american and they had a 'interesting' section on the tower of London. It was presented by a woman who looked alarming like Jim Carey and apparently, according to her, the ravens at the tower are constantly stealing Twinkies from
visitors. REALLY, I wasn't aware that we actually had twinkles in the uk let alone that they are so popular! For the record, they are gross. She also showed a picture of Katherine Howard (Henry VIII'S 5th wife) which was THE WRONG PICTURE! No offence America but you are terrible at history!

It's a shame the girls are leaving tomorrow, especially Jaz and Yafit as I haven't really got to spend much time with them and they're pretty funny. Definitely had a giggle watching the olympics, mostly taking the piss but it was fun.

Diving tomorrow! Cannot wait!
