07h40: up! 08h: diving shop. Gear, checking in, people are late. We leave at 9 and I think Dr T is very brave. We are with 6 (4 Americans), the diving master and the captain.
20 minutes sail, drop in the water (after Marina fell on the floor, all geared up with a big iiieeek) for a long drift dive. Perfect weather and visibility. The diving master fiddles with my gear at the end. I HATE IT. What? Did I show any signs of distress? Did I ask for help? Is this your gear or mine? I bit people's hand off for less!
Afterwards, we go ashore somewhere of half an hour and then our second dive. Lots of fish ( some huge: our size) and Dr T takes me 'flying': he swims on top of me, holding me gently by the.. uh.. upper body and so we fly together through the water. It is l.vely, like having a motor on your back. He has perfect buoyancy for the both of us and can swim 10 centimeters above the bottom with me.
We are back by 12h30, take a shower and to my surprise, Dr T goes to bed for a long snooze. He is exhausted and was very brave going diving.
It is after 3 now, I went for a meal, kept you posted and now it is time for the swimming pool and my book. We will dive the coming 3 days, at least and ... I would not mind staying another week. Apart from the diving, you can rent cute beetle convertibles.
