Today I went snorkeling with my German friend again. We saw a turtle on the third time, but on the second time, he went on his own private dive without me. So, what I did was go on my own.

They gave us some pointers for Sydney. We then go get our equipment. We have to have stinger suits as this is jellies season. Shin is going to be our dive guide for the day.
