Location: Cabo Andritxol, Mallorca

Today started out like most mornings, with the exception of waking up to Yeshiva Boys Choir (If you don’t know, search them up) and some Israeli tunes. After a great breakfast of granola and yogurt, we split up into two groups for our first two open water dives. One half stayed back on the boat in the morning and caught up on sleep, finished schoolwork, and even got a workout inthe other half dove in the morning with what us divers call a giant stride off of Vela. We were greeted in the water by a minefield of jellyfish. Luckily we all made it down to thirty-two feet without a single sting. Besides jellyfish, we spotted a devil ray, a very rare yellow dive flipper, goggles, and numerous towels. We successfully completed the dives and returned to the boat for lunch excellently cooked by Head chef Savanna.

Dive team, two set off after lunch cleanup, a little closer to the boat because of traffic. The new location brought with it a few octopuses and Joe’s excellent superhero landing at the bottom. Dive two was a little less fortunate with the jellyfish with a few sting casualties. Since we are anchored, it is back to ocean showers for the crew. Everyone was a little fearful of our great friends, the jellyfish, but we completed our showers without incident. With everyone nice and clean, we sat down for a great feast made again by the one and only Savanna and during the meal played a game called Place the Clothespin on a crewmate with the goal of the target not noticing till count-off. Unfortunately, I, the Skipper of the day, lost and therefore had to sing karaoke to save myself from walking the plank. I think it’s safe to say my rendition of “I Want it That Way” by the Backstreet Boys was the perfect song to start the game off with and enough to save me from a chilled night swim. After a fun and tiring day, everyone is going to sleep well tonight.

Hi Mom, Dad, Yael, Rosa, Mary, Sandra, and everyone else, I love and miss you all.

Goodnight and Shabbat Shalom.
