Today I tried scuba diving for the first time. It’s a surreal experience to breathe underwater for the first time and even though it was not easy I did make some progress. The thing about diving is you never know what to expect, but just trying something new is a worth while experience. Everyone else in the group had a good time and we’re all looking forward to continuing our training and eventually becoming certified divers like some of the other shipmates aboard. While the dive students were in the water practicing skills, the rest of the crew went ashore for some fun in the sun. Savannah Bay has a picturesque white sand beach, surrounded on one side by green hills and on the other with turquoise waters. And as I saw this scene sprawled out before me riding the dinghy back to Ocean Star my mind thought of paradise.
