Journal Entry:
Got up early only to find that my shark dive had been canceled due to the wind. There was a chance it might be able to go out a couple hours later so I hung out. The later trip was canceled as well - sigh. It was mostly gray and pretty windy so not a lot to do. In the afternoon right after the final chance to dive had been cancelled the wind settled. I was walking across town (about 100m) to confirm my dolphin swim tomorrow when I glanced up just as the sun burst through the clouds - the snow on the mountains was dazzling white, it was incredible. I sat on the beach and just watched the clouds go by for an hour. When the sun started to go down I spent the evening watching videos in the lounge.
