We discovered that since the dives sites are so close to shore, there is only one two-tank dive, which we were doing today. That means they won't be doing this dive again tomorrow, which also means we won't be able to get married on the boat after all. The boat will come to shore between dives, and so will we. It's too bad, but not the end of the world. So it will be a beach wedding instead -- that's nothing to complain about.
Our first dive was the Lesleen M wreck dive, which was wonderful. I felt very adventurous swimming through the hull, up the stairway, and across the deck, though I never lost sight of the "outside.
The second dive wasn't much to talk about. I had a rough entry, and the water was murky and chilly. I saw a small turtle though, so it was worth it.
We got back to dry land at 12:15, raced back to the room for a quick cleanup, got to the restaurant at 12:40, ate in about 3 minutes, then we were off again for our walking tour with Meno. The tour started with a boat ride to a beach at Anse Mamet Plantation. Meno gave us an informative tour through the forest, patiently explaining the leaves, trees, flowers along the way - he is quite the botanist, and a really nice guy to boot.
Steve was practically sleep walking by this point, so he had a nap while I had afternoon tea at the beach cafe.
In the evening, we ate again at the downstairs restaurant, which was partial table service with a buffet. I had a Greek salad which was swamped in dressing. Not as nice as the Tree House.
Then to bed kind of early ... tomorrow is our big wedding day!
