The day began with our second dive rescue scenario at 6:30 am, which was a huge improvement from the first one. It was awesome to see everyone on the boat act as a team in order to complete the task at hand. After the scenario, we had breakfast and fun dives.
As certified rescue divers, we went and explored a small reef next to a cliff in Falmouth Harbour. This was awesome, and I even saw a spotted eagle ray for the first time ever (that I can remember). After the dive, the day consisted of fishing, writing cards, and relaxing with the crew until lunch. After lunch, we began to 40/40 the boat to move her to her final resting place while a few other divers went out for one last dive. For dinner, we hiked up a trail to a place called Shirley Heights that overlooked both our anchorage spot and our final destination (dock). The views were sick, and the meal came with an ice-cold beer or coke. After the meal and squeeze, we hiked down the trail and went back to Vela for our 2nd to last night there.
