Journal Entry:
When I woke up my stomach was feeling better and I realized I was to sunburned to go to the beach so I decided to dive again. The first dive was at "The Wall" - only 20 minutes away. The visibility was horrible (less than 5 meters), but it was still a very enjoyable dive as there were tons of big fish. Between the dives we went back to the jetty for a couple hours where I had a light lunch and read. The second dive was about 40 minutes out at "Aquarium". The visibility was much better and again there wasn't anything really exciting, but it was still very nice. Plus it was long - well over an hour underwater. Back on shore it was dark and I had to ride home in the dark again - not nearly as stressful this time, but I still didn't like it.
