Location: Low Isles
Today we awoke to startlingly calm seas. From the Low Isles where were anchored to the mountains on the coast of mainland Australia, the water had barely a blemish of a wave. We spent the day diving! After starting the day off right with some chocolate chip pancakes we had another Oceanography class. Later, the divers who are trying for their Open water Diving certification had their first open water dive! We got to see sea cucumbers, a spotted spiny lobster and some remoras living in their reef. Then the advanced divers went out to do their Peak Performance Dive and got to perfect their neutral buoyance by swimming through hoola hoops and sticking their heads in a bucket underwater. Dinner was again accompanied by another beautiful sunset and the crew spirits couldn’t be higher. The Argonauts are coming together. The collective volume is rising as people start laughing more and more. Everyone is coming together as a group. The once nervous silences at meals have been replaced by ruckus laughter and hilarious stories. Coucou Nono Maman Papa et Camille!
