Sunday: All of our guests warmed up to a nice week of diving by gracefully diving into the water and conucting their own weight checks. It was 82 degrees outside with a bit of wind. Water temperature was 79 degrees. For dinner we enjoyed a wonderful meal of Herbed Beef tenderloin with a side of Mushroom risotto and Zucchini with Squash. Everyone was in bed by 9:30 to rest up for a nice day of diving.
Monday: Monday we arrived at Amphitheatre which is a beautiful dive site, attributing its name to the Amphitheatre by the formation of the wall. The wind came down even more from Monday and the diving was absolutely perfect. Water temperature was 80 degrees. David studied for his nitrox certification which he will receive at the end of the trip.
Tuesday: Tuesday represented on of the perfect dive days at the Turks and Caicos with near to in wind and warm waters. Everyone enjoyed a nice day of diving and eating. For dinner we all were fortunate enough to feast upon a mixed greens salad, oven roasted pork loin with homemade sauerkraut, wild rice, and sautéed cabbage and potatoes. For desert it was a lovely triple chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream.
Wednesday: Wednesday we dove at the Spanish Anchor, and G-Spot. These two spots boast a large variety of marine life and all of the guests were able to enjoy them. From sharks t0o eagle rays, mushroom corals and large gorgonians all plentiful. Chef Christy cooked up herbed lamb with savory sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, cornbread, and homemade cranberry sauce. Burleigh for the second night in a row was the only night diver!
Thursday: We spent the morning diving on Rock N Roll which was the king of Rock N Rolls favorite dive site, Elvis that is. The first dive was a transition dive that started in the dark and ended with the sun rise. We showed the video that our video pro Conor had worked on throughout the week. We enjoyed a final wine and cheese cocktail party with our guests.
