Journal Entry:
The assistant told me I couldn't use the bike, so I had to wait for the camp manager to show up to tell me I could use the motorcycle again - no problem, tomorrow I'll save the time and not ask. We were diving "Miverva Ledge" today - way out in the open sea and an hour an a half ride to get there. Both dives were great. There were a couple big schools of red tooth trigger fish (one of my favorites from Dahab), but the highlight was a giant (2+ m) white and black banded sea snake on the second dive. It was so graceful and beautiful of course I'd left my camera on board for the second dive. The ride back seemed even longer and by the time we got back to shore I was feeling very sun burned. At least I was able to ride back to number five before sunset - so I didn't have to ride in the dark again. I took a very much needed bucket bath and then started to have some stomach problems. I tried order rice for diner thinking that might help, but it was very spice and I only ate a few bites before heading for bed. Between being absolutely exhausted, my sunburn, and my stomach I think I'm going to take tomorrow off from diving.
