    We geared up rather quickly compared to last weekend.

    I was the first one through the surf zone.

    I told the group, “I’ll make it past the line of death first;” Gloria found the humor in that.

    Archie was tired and had to rest, Jim tank towed Gloria, unknowing to her at first.

    This was the “check out” dive.

    John was congested, so he had me go up with three of his students during their simulated emergency swimming ascent; I pointed out to Gloria that she needs to exhale as she ascends.

    We did a little touring once the basic skills were done.

    Coming ashore, I tried helping Archie out, but he was too tired to get up.

    He crawled up on to the shore and I helped him take his fins off.
