Was I afraid? No definitely not. I just concentrated on the two main rules we’ve learned about diving. Rule 1 is always breathe. Rule 2 is don’t panic, relax and enjoy the dive. I might have been a little nervous at first but I got more relaxed over time. Only one thing went wrong towards the end of the dive when I had some trouble clearing my right ear. I just went up a bit and cleared it and I was free to go back down.
As if that weren't enough excitement, we went fishing on the way back from our dive. On the way to Dreamhouse that morning, we had seen some black terns. They were going after fish that was being chased by bigger fish. Colin had some fishing rods with lures and so we started trolling. We did not get anything on the way to Dreamhouse but on the way back to the dock, Colin caught a skipjack tuna. It weighed about 5 pounds. Michael and Isaac cleaned the fish at the dock. They took the guts and gills out and fed them to the fish in the marina. They took the fish home for dinner. Isaac wanted the fish head, which is a delicacy usually reserved for the village chief. We had an awesome day and I hope that we can do it again before we go home.
Oops! We forgot to take pictures of Tica and Ian's big day. I guess we were too excited. Here is a video of some magic coral from the Siga Siga reef. Pretty cool. Of course, we try not to touch the coral very much as it is not very good for it. Sometimes it is just SO tempting.
