Yesterday I woke up a bit stuffy….like I was getting a cold. I had two dives on the schedule to complete my advanced open water certification.

Both dives were from a boat. We suited up and headed to some dive wrecks. The visibility was poor for this area and the wrecks non-eventful. The clarity and wildlife were much more abundant on the Georgia dive I did in July.

The second dive was at the Swirling Reef of Death. On the descent my right ear began to hurt. I came back up the shallow water and tried to equalize. After several attempts it finally cleared but I could tell my system was at the dive limit for the day. Then my nose began to run. This is not fun in a mask, plus the fact that one needs clear nostrils to clear a mask of water. So I took on a bit of water and finished the dive.

After the dive we ate lunch and headed to Reef Jam a live outdoor concert fund raiser. By late afternoon I was exhausted, over sunned, well served with libation, so we headed back to the villa.

Glad you made it through the dives in spite of your frustrations! And since you ended the day well-served with libations, I hope that means you aren't coming down with something.
