Location: Elba, Italy
We started the day with me waking everyone up with some bird noises, which I picked out during my watch last night. After that, we had some delicious Swedish pancakes, and we got ready to do our swim test, which we were all super excited about because it was our first time jumping in the water. The water was actually really nice, even though it was kinda of cold on deck. Then, the already certified divers went on our first dive and did a check-out dive while the divers getting certified practiced putting together their dive gear. On the dive, we did some basic skills just to refresh ourselves because a bunch of us had not dove in a while. While we were diving, the non-certified divers also got to swimShoutout to Caroline for accomplishing her goal of learning to do a backflip. After lunch, we had to motor to a different part of Elba because something on Argo needed to get a part fixed on the dock. The motor was super nice and pretty. We then had our first class! It was leadership where we learned what we were going to be doing in that class. After class, we had dinner, and there was a gorgeous sunset. Some of us (me and Caroline) are also SUPER excited to have our first ocean shower tonight because we are on anchor. Overall super fun and eventful day.
