Lau-lau Bay, Dive 2

After an hour rest, we proceed with the plan to dive the other side of Laulau Bay. This time, medyo challenging ang trail compared to our first dive. Mr. Kozumi did not join this time, only four of us went along.

Lau-lau has a natural underwater trail. Here we've passed narrow passage, creavases, cave and plateaus. The current was frustrating sometimes and I've had a hard time equalizing because of uneven terrain.

Experienced sa simple problems in diving this time ang mga naencounter but before hand, our dive master Bob refresh me on the proper signs to check the gauge, and we did this underwater. Also, another problem that I had encountered was to have neutral bouyancy, it came to a point that I'm floating gradually so I made a sign to Fumi (the Japanese guide) that I wanted go down, I found out later that he had to open the back valve and pushed me downwarn to go back to the bottom because I put so much air on BC. The thing is, I did not point the valve upwards to release some of the air kaya feeling ko bakit walang narerelease na hangin, and that's lesson no. 2.

Since I'm running out of air (because of intermettent stops to take pictures), me and Fumi went back to the shore while Kuya Bob and Reina went further deep. Again the dive took us 30 minutes and this time at a depth of 20 meters.

The underwater casing works just fine. My biggest worries didn't happen, ang magkaroon ng leak.
