    I about flipped when Gloria took her wetsuit off during the surface interval.

    We were trying to take an early boat out and I thought very early that this group was going to drag ass.

    After John and Young Biologist had their surface interval (lunch) we all went down to do the second dive of the day.

    We submerged and followed John.

    John was his typical torpedo self.

    The students tried to follow the best they could, dragging across the bottom and doing their “stairmaster” kick.

    I paid attention to Young Biologist as she was my “buddy.”

    Nothing really out of the ordinary to report on this dive.

    We exited as the tide was coming up.

    We all packed up and left Casino Point with the hope of getting an early boat back.

    We ended up being on standby for the 2:05 PM boat.

    The students paid $10 more to get on the “Commodore” class – you sit on the middle deck and get a free drink and bag of chips.

    The rest of us were able to wait and get on the same boat, Economy class.
