Horrible sleep last night - I was up 'til at least five. At seven woke up and changed the alarm clock from 8:30 to eight so I'd be able to get some food before diving. Somehow in the process I managed to turn the alarm off. I woke up five minutes after nine - I was supposed to be at the dive center at nine! Got dressed, my gear together, and over to the dive shop in under three minutes!
The dive was good. Visibility was pretty good (~80 feet) and the water was warm (~75°C). But I didn't see anything amazing - a year from now I'll remember that I dove here, but probably nothing else. The highlight was a swim through (tunnel in the rocks) at about 25 meters (80 feet).
I decided to skip the afternoon dive and look around the town. There's not much here. Walked the beach down to Wolmar, the neighboring village where all the fancy hotels are. It was a beautiful walk, and the weather has completely cleared up from the morning's overcast. Back at the hotel I wandered through the town of Flic en Flac. Mostly it's just a collection of hotels, restaurants, and tourist shops. I was really struck by how un-African this island is. It really does feel like it should be in French Polynesia.
On my way back to the hotel I bought a beer (at a quarter the price) and went and watched the sunset again. Diner wasn't the giant buffet - I guess they only do that a couple times a week - but it was still good. I arranged for transport to the airport in the morning.
