Notes
1. "Fun" is the direct object of the verbal (infinitive) "to have." The verbal phrase functions as an adverb (of purpose) to "went."
2. The function of the word "scuba" will give grammarians hours of discussion. KISS treats "scuba dive" as an idiom. Thus the verbal (infinitive) "to scuba dive" functions as an adverb (of purpose) to "were on our way," which means "were going."
3. The verbal (infinitive) "to wait" functions as an adverb (of purpose) to "got."
4. The verbal (infinitive) "to go" functions as an adverb (of purpose) to "sped."
5. The verbal (infinitive) "to start" functions as an adverb (of purpose) to "eager." "Me" is the direct object of "to start."
6. "Her" is the indirect object of the verbal (infinitive) "to help." That infinitive phrase functions as the direct object of the verbal (infinitive) "to try." The "to try" phrase functions as an adverb (of purpose) to "went."
7. The verbal (infinitive) "to see" functions as an adverb (of purpose) to "came."
