Michael Curry Day 7

Today I awoke with the rooster and immediately thought to myself, "Last day best day, I have to make it as meaningful as possible." Though there wasn't anything really special about our last full day, I tried to stop myself multiple times throughout the day to soak it all in. Just be present. Because I was more focused on...

Michael Curry Day 6

Today started out with the rooster alarm clock followed by eggs and hash browns for breakfast. The agenda for today was two wreck sites (submerged boats for snorkeling and diving) and a beach cleanup! The first wreck site was of the USS Kittiwake.

After a delightful breakfast, we had a boat meeting outside the dive hut to...

Michael Curry Day 1

Arriving to the resort was a spectacle of its own. There is beach front service (food, pool, and a view of the ocean) with a dock that provides direct access to a patch of coral less than 100 feet from the edge of the pier. An hour after arrival, we went for a quick snorkel to acclimate to the...
