Dan and Justy Down Under


January 30, 2005


We were flying out today, so no diving for us. We snorkeled instead. I should say that Justy snorkeled and I got back on the boat after accidentally swallowing some seawater and retching it back out. It's too bad, I was enjoying that breakfast.

A Dutch woman snorkeled for about a minute before coming back on board and laying on the deck moaning for the reamainder of our time afloat. It was obvious she was seasick, but just as obvious she had had nothing for breakfast (it was now 11:30am), and was very dehydrated. Our skipper Josh did his best to help her, but she was miserable. After we arrived back at the beach, she collapsed in the surfzone and had to be carried to the shade. A potent reminder to hydrate.

Home away, home away
