Well, I did. My photo was taken, my information sent, and I am now a certified Open Water Diver. Bam. I had a scratchy throat on Tuesday and by yesterday morning, it had morphed into a full on cold. That means that it was nearly impossible for me to equalize my ears and my brain felt like it was going to explode on my dives. But- I did it. I was able to finish my skills and still have two pleasant dives where we saw barracudas and squid, and more beautiful fish that I can count. We also cruised under the glass bottom boat and waved at the passengers.
Tomorrow we are diving a wreck and Mary's Place, one of the top dive sites in the world.
