We spent the day in our bathing suits again, scuba diving this morning and then snorkeling and touring the town of El Nido this afternoon. The two dives were good, but I was really f’n nervous for the first dive again. The dive master held my hand the whole time, which was calming, but a bit annoying.
I actually think that he weighted me down too much, too. The problem with not being an experienced diver is that I basically let the dive master make all of the decisions for me. I have trouble descending (likely because I am instinctively trying to stay on top of the water), but once I’m actually down, I don’t need the extra weight.
Both dives had us at about 45 feet and we were under for roughly 35-45 minutes per dive. My air consumption is improving!
As promised, here are some random pictures from the last few days… these are from the point and shoot…
I can’t figure out how to label each picture, but here’s the gist:
– Us on a boat
– Some land shots
– Picture of the resort
