Journal Entry:
Back to diving today. The first dive was close to the jetty at Lighthouse reef. There was nothing fantastic about the dive, but despite mediocre visibility (about 30 feet) it was a really nice dive. Between the two dives we went back to shore, but for less than an hour.

The second dive was at Pilot Reef, about an hour boat ride out. Again I really enjoyed the dive - even though the visibility was worse that the first dive. The topography of the reef was quite convoluted - between that and the poor visibility it took almost all my concentration just to keep with the group. Again it was a nice long hour plus dive.

As a pleasant surprise we were back on land just after three. That meant I was back at the camp a good hour before dusk. So I did the remainder of my laundry (the things I was wearing yesterday), cleaned out my hut (it needed it), and bathed (I definitely needed it!) Spent the evening sorting the digital photos I've taken over the last few days and reading. For diner I got a little daring and had the vegetable tahli - it was fantastic - I can't wait until tomorrow night just so I can order it again! I ended the night staying up later talking about India, travel, philosophy, and religion - but as one topic.
