Today was a rest and recuperation day for us all - after being up until about 3am the night before it certainly wasn't going to be much of an active day as we were all hung over to various degrees. I'd once again forgotten to turn off my 7am alarm and that early wake up call didn't get my day started off too well, but I later got some rest in the cockpit.
We didn't make it onto shore until the afternoon when we finished the PADI formalities for Desi and Agathe (payment, mug shots) and rented some equipment from Octopus diving so that we could explore the various dive locations on our own in the coming days. Apart from that we didn't manage to do much at all and had a nice steak dinner prior to going to bed.
