Tokong on an easy day. Photo courtesy of Emily even though I haven’t yet told her I stole it yet. Not pictured: sharks, eagle rays, devil rays, barracudas, marble rays, the school of jacks, and other cool shit we like to visit while we’re here.
Word of the Day: flying
Notable/Highlight of the day: Sophie’s two students, Lea and Tiffany, were doing their deep dive and Sergi invited me along. Anita would be guiding Dave off off Seulako.
As we only had one boat, Sergi, the girls and I hung back during the first trip while Sergi did the deep dive briefing and I practiced knot-tying skills.
We headed off to Tokong expecting some current, but when we started our descent we flew over the top of tokong to the other side of the pinnacle in a matter of minutes. I was worried the girls would have ear problems, but everyone was fine as we sped down looking for a hiding place.
When we got to 26 meters the current died down but we were still drifting. We couldn’t go much farther without entering the chanel, which would be crazy, so we made our way over and around the pinnacle to the deep on the other side. Which was also crazy current-y.
The girls signed up for a deep dive but instead got every current imaginable in the span of 38 minutes. And my air consumption was shit and it was a bit embarrassing. And as usual, I dropped something in the ocean, this time, the advanced slate. I’m becoming part of the ocean pollution problem.
Another stolen photo
Our evening was relaxed with us playing more hand-made board games and hanging out knowing we had the next morning off. Emily stopped by for a while and gave me some stickers to use to decorate some lighters foe everyone with.
Trisha and I are becoming close friends and hanging out a lot more. I think it’s because we tend to dive together all the time and we typically stay up later than everyone.
