So off to the IE! After saying a fond farewell to boss of the shop, Damien the dive dog ; ) the candidates and myself started the 4 hour trip up to Coco for the IE. We managed to squeeze in a stop to look at the crocs hanging out in Tarcoles before arriving in Coco just after midday. The IE started at 3.00pm sharp and the PADI man himself was a very nice guy called Eric. After intros, I left Drew and James and wished them success as they started on their exams. Utilising the whole time to make sure they were successful they both came out with a look of relief as the first part is now over. The rest of the evening they had to prepare for the confined, open water and knowledge development tomorrow. My part as a CD is finished…. its all up to them now!!
