There were mixed emotions this morning when we learned the conditions were too windy to go on our last dive. We were sad to miss out on this last dive, but grateful for the opportunity to sleep and study for our final exam today. Everyone spent most of the day over identification books and laptops, silently mouthing scientific names of fish, invertebrates, and algae. As we were all waiting to enter the wet lab for the oral part of the exam, a full rainbow broke out across the water—it helped take our minds off of the task of impending doom.

The exam is over now, and everyone is happy to relax, eat our last dinner, and hang out with all of the friends we made here. It’s been a great trip!

Congratulations to Hannah for becoming a PADI certified open water diver today!
