Derek was not feeling well after the first dive and stayed on the boat. I had a migraine and through up in between dives, but went down anyway. Christy and I slowly made it to the bottom and followed the dive master around. The first thing we saw was a moray eel poking his head out from behind a rock. We saw lots of fish, got passed by a 4ft barracuda. Christy did very well with her buoyancy on this dive! We circled the reef and headed back to the boat. As we ascended, I looked at my computer and saw that we had a 13 min deco stop at 10 ft. We slowly worked our way up and stopped at 10 ft. We stayed for about 8 min. Since both dives were very relaxed and Christy did not descend as deep as I did on the first dive, I decided to cut the deco stop short by about 5 min. When I got up, Cachi told me that he had done the same. It was fun to put my watch under water the rest of the day and hear it beep at me! :-P
