Where I stayed
Another 06:00 "wake up scuba time"... but, only 3 more dives and will be fully cerifited open water divers!!!
We were up last night completeing the written test... Everyone (including the boys) passed the written test... to pass they had to have over 90%...
During the first dive of the day we were all tested on the various tactics we learned throughout our training. Yes, Julie was testing on removing her regulator and was able to do so with out much trouble!
Later that dive we cruised around the great barrier reef using uop the air in our tanks and saw a turtle... I looked over to point it out to Julie and she was already heading full steam to the turtle with her arm extended...
It was quite the opposite reaction when we saw a shark on the floor of the ocean in an earlier dive
(For Mac and Lorraine - Frankie is still alive and well... we were all able to touch and feel this amazing fish)
With the 3 dives for the day under our belts we hopped on the (slow boat to china) back to Cairns. We never realized how slow the boat was, as we were studying all the way to the Reef Encounter Boat. We did stop once to snorkel and Julie was able to swim down and play with another 2 turtles... There was a couple photos taken and we will try to get a copy of them off the daypix website. We then hired a taxi to the Cairns Beach Resort where we were able to put out feet up and relax for the rest of the day.
