Woke up about 8am, but unlike yesterday, we were relatively hangover free. I put this down to the 2 litre jug of water we saw off at the end of last night's Troll Game - a very wise decision!
We did two fantastic dives in the morning, we saw lots of new coral, more lionfish and huge schools of fish!
On the way back, we talked about how sad we were to be finishing our dive course the next day and jokingly mentioned "we could do our advanced course..." Joe overheard us discussing this and offered us our advanced course at a price we couldn't refuse.
Before we knew it, we were booked in for another 3 days of diving and living the life at Mantaray!
Although we had decided to stay, we had to say goodbye to a lot of friends that we'd met over the past few days (the worst bit of travelling).
That afternoon we were lucky enough to be taken out wake-skating by Joe and Justin. I actually just went along for the boat ride, pretty views and to laugh at Louie falling off - my balance on solid ground is ropey to say the least, let alone on water!
As wikipedia puts it "Wake-skate is the same as wake-boarding, minus the foot bindings, which adds it's own unique challenges..."
Joe and Justin were both amazing at it, not a suprise seeing as they were both brought up on the ocean. It was Louie's first time at trying anything like this and I've got to hand it to him, he was pretty good - he even had Joe and Justin impressed.... The well-balanced bastard!
That night, we laid off the alcohol, finished our open water theory and I started to get some serious butterflies about tomorrow's shark dive at the aptly named 'brown-trousers reef'!
