After taking care of laundry in the morning, Michael, Rob and myself headed out to Prickly armed with 3 tanks and a plan. We returned in the late afternoon with 3 empty tanks and without having sighted a dinghy. I did find a plastic beach chair but failed to bring it aboard. Michael has, finally, given up on finding and restoring his dinghy and outboard engine. After having a post-dive lunch (with fantastic Chicken roti and hamburgers) at the Sand Box we returned to Leverick. Rob and Lauren are departing for St. Martin tomorrow morning before sunrise but I will be following in their wake a day later as I still have to make it to Nanny Cay in order to get some paperwork from the boat sales office there.
The happy 'Arrrr show was fun and well visited with a vocal crowd and afterwards I made a bite to eat and called it an early night (after taking some pictures from the docks with my camera & tripod).

Diving for Dinghies I'm finally getting to use my NITROX certification while diving in a mere 30-40 feet of water off Prickly Pear island in the North Sound. Michael Beans had sunk his aluminium dinghy in this mooring field and we spent 3 unsuccessful days looking for it.
