A Day in between Dives

Today has been pretty uneventful, but that was a good thing. I have been struggling with a headache for at least a couple of days now, I haven’t slept well and I think I strained a muscle in my upper back. In conclusion, I needed some rest and also some light exercises and stretching for my back and neck. I got all of that today and now I feel much better, ready to go diving again tomorrow. Kelly hasn’t been feeling awesome today either; he’s had a bit of a headache all day. Maybe it’s just the heat that we’re not used to. 

We started the day with breakfast at the cafe on Octagon Square just below our room. They have really tasty sandwiches and good quality tea. Even though it’s been nice to eat our own food out on the balcony for a couple of mornings, it hasn’t exactly been a culinary treat. Kelly brought his laptop to the cafe, to work on editing the GoPro material. Once he’s made some nice videos, I’ll share them.

Kelly spent a large part of the day working on the video from our snorkeling and dives. It really is a lot of work to turn it into something useful and interesting, finding the interesting bits, cutting away the boring parts and adjusting colors. I spent much of the time blogging; that’s why all the recent posts were published today… Other than that we sat on the beach and just relaxed. We watched some pelicans hunting fish! Kelly went back to the room in the late afternoon/early evening, but I stayed until the sun set, and took a little swim before heading to the room to freshen up for dinner. We ate at the Blues Bar again – this night was burger night, and it was very tasty. We even had some “Bahama Mamas” and felt like Dr Kelso in Scrubs… 😉
