There was another boy who was having a difficult time, so I stayed with him, while Aubree dove with Shay and Bro Bitter. She did a great job! Captain Eric nicknamed her Purple because of her wet suit. She was also the only girl to do all the dives, so I think she earned his respect. Both Shay and I opted not to get back on the boat because the nausea still hadn't worn off. Capt. Eric let her use his hood and gloves on the afternoon dive the next day because the water is so cold. It's like having a permanent brain freeze!
This is most of our group helping to load gear onto the boat at the marina. We had a record number of girls diving this trip. 3 moms, 4 daughters, and a friend. I think we had 39 people in all, including the Bitter family and ours, because we do all the planning and organizing. It's a blast every year and we'll keep doing it as long as we have time and it's still fun!
