Wow, it is almost the weekend and I haven't even properly posted about last weekend! This week has been insane. Between research, finishing up end of the year things, entertaining/ babysitting visitors in the lab, and diving five out of the past six days, I have been busy!
This weekend was great, though. About 15 of us rented a boat for the weekend and dove our brains out. Some of the guys tested out their rebreathers which allows them to stay at depth for 4 hours! I was proud of myself for reaching my deepest depth at 40 meters. After this week of so much diving I feel that my skills have really improved.
For our boat trip, we went to the south, where the water is a bit warmer (27-29C still feels cold to us!) and where the reefs are fantastic. Truly gorgeous corals, fish, sharks, turtles and of course sponges were seen. On several occasions I missed the giant school of barracuda that passed me and about ran into a moray eel because I was too focused on looking at the sponges! They're just so darn cute!
Have a great rest of your week, who knows what the weekend might bring!
