So last night was the written exam for the SCUBA class, and I am definitely glad that part is over. There were 50 questions, and it was comprehensive. It covered everything from hand signals to depth planning, decompression sickness to dive equipment, and buoyancy to ascending and descending procedures. Ric, Greg and I passed with no problem, and it is good to have that behind us. Now, I can focus on the two diving days this weekend.
Saturday, we are doing beach dives from La Jolla shores and Sunday we will be diving from the boat into the kelp beds. I am more worried about Saturday, since those are the “skills qualification” dives. Yikes. I just want to be through this part and on to the fun, completely recreational dives.
