We have sorted out our equipment challenges and it is peace and tranquility under the waves. The “Snail Team” made up of S, K, V, P, Murray and me plus B, dive master extraordinaire, inch along peering under ledges, inside tube corals, into the deep blue, taking photos.
We hover beside our favorites taking yet another picture.
We wait patiently for miniscule spotted decorator shrimp to peak out of anemones.
We peer down tube sponges to discover brittle stars attached to the inside.
We float above a spotted moray with its mouth open to breath.
We marvel at porcelain like flamingo tongues holding tightly to fan corals and a shark as it cruises by causing great excitement in the Snail Team. .
We have three more dive days to peak into holes, drift past coral heads and commiserate with the fish.
