Journal Entry:
Heavy rain in the morning woke me but I was able to go back to sleep - luckily the rain masked the sound of the pump, so I got to sleep in until seven. Sue and I went on another working dive - this one to clean the coral farm. Basically we took each piece of coral out of these big trays, cleaned the algae / sand / etc from the trays and the rocks in the trays, then scrubbed the base of the coral before planting it back in the tray. We were underwater forever - I finally came up when I got low on air after 95 minutes - Sue finished the tray she was working on and surfaced about five minutes later- with a third of her tank left! Lunch, then I worked on my journal a bit.

Spent the afternoon learning my way around their new compressor and filling air tanks. While the compressor banks were filling I also worked on the journal scripts and got this journal somewhat online. I got Stacy to help me install the pressure sensor for my new dive computer, but the arrangement of the ports on my first stage don't leave enough room for it -so it looks like I can't use it. Sue, Stacy, and Eleanor made a fantastic diner of tuna tacos. We sat up until nearly eleven drinking beer and wine.
