Hello Everyone! Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances and job wheel changes, Anton got skipped as skipper today. He was demoted to trash master. Funnily enough, we share a birthday, so we’re basically the same person. He’s also reading this over my shoulder as I write, so anything in brackets is comments from Anton [darn tootin’].
We started the day off with a hearty breakfast and went straight into class after cleanup. First up was Oceanography [oh-see-an-ography], where we learned about plate tectonics and oceanic hot spots [two riveting topics], which both play an interesting role in island formation. Next, we had Seamanship, which was dedicated to knot learning, boat anatomy, and line identification. Gabe is a great teacher and those of us who haven’t sailed before are finding his classes super helpful.
The afternoon was kind of a free-for-all some people went into town while others stayed on the boat. I took an amazing nap on the main boom and somehow did not fall off. Anton walked into town with some of the other guys and stocked up on Coke, Red Bull, Frosted Flakes, and Goldfish [the four major food groups]. We both went on a deep dive at around 15:30 [subtract twelve to get normal time] with our dive groups to further progress our advanced open water dive training. It was super cool being able to identify all of the fish we learned about in Marine Biology and see them in the wild. Some people (Anton) had a little too much fun with their air and got mild nitrogen narcosis. Luckily, it subsided after ascending a bit, so everyone was okay (Anton was dying at the pictures of Kelsey for a while after, though).
After getting back to the boat, we had some downtime before dinner, and afterward, those who did not go night diving last night geared up and headed to the beach. The rest of us finished cleanup and are now either studying, going to bed, or writing the blog. I think I’m going to wrap this up now and go to bed, but I hope everyone at home is doing well and has a great rest of their day! (Also, thank you, Anton, for putting up with my antics this evening)
