Mantaray Island - Day 3

Woke up with the mother of all hangovers after the previous night's antics.
We missed breakfast, so went straight to the dive shop for our 9am dive. Joe didn't turn up as he was still too drunk to lead a dive, but he'd organised Andy to take the lead so off we went!

It was our first boat dive and we went to a dive site called 'the wall'. It was a great dive again - 30degree water, heaps of stuff to look at and the huge coral wall that stretched as far as the eye can see.
Things didn't stay that positive for long though. The first major thing we were about to learn about Scuba diving - it will magnify your hangover about 100times, something to do with your body getting rid of excess nitrogen.

  • MATH TIME* 

Hangover from hell + seasickness = lethal concoction that postpones 2nd dive.

  • MATH TIME OVER*

We spent the rest of the morning lazing on the beach and feeling sorry for ourselves.
Much later on in the afternoon Joe offered to take us paddle-boarding, as my hangover was starting to wear off (Charlie's wasn't, she was still in a crater sized hole) I decided it would be rude not to!

We had dinner again with Justin, Joe, Colin & June. We got to hear some of the fantastic sailing stories Colin and June have had aboard their 40ft turkish boat - it looks like a pirate ship, it's awesome.

Hannah, Sophie, Dan & Aisha joined us later on and there were suggestions of Troll game round 2...
...Hefty amounts of peer pressure later (and plenty of wine) we were soon taking part in the largest Troll game Mantaray has ever hosted, or so the legend reads!
