Dutch Springs – By Javier Vazquez, 10th grade

      DSSo it was my first ever dive outside the pool and I was really excited. I remember getting up around 3 in the morning really tired, at that point I was not looking forward to anything but sleep. This was literally the earliest I had ever been up in my life. I packed my lunch, grabbed my stuff and I got in the car. On the way to the BMB I saw that there was a store open and so I ran in and got myself a Bacon Egg and Cheese for breakfast. After arriving to the BMB I saw that most of my friends were there and we all started talking about how hyped we all were for our first dive in Dutch Springs. We had about an hour before the bus left so Quincy, Steven and I walked to Dunkin Donuts. Almost 30 minutes later the bus arrived. We boarded the bus and we were all present but one person, Diego. Well, Diego was unfortunately stuck on the R train and missed the bus. 2 hours later we arrived at Dutch Springs.

Javi      The seniors guided us on how we should unload the van and from there we went on to one of  the most unforgettable days of my life. The visibility was great and we got to see a lot of different fish. I was actually able to dive twice with no problems and finished all my skills required for that day. The ride back was the best part because I was finally able to sleep.
