... lovely and clear so I could see all the brightly coloured fish, crabs, cuttlefish etc etc. Unfortunately we didn't see a turtle or a sting ray or a black tip reef shark though the guys just diving for the day did - gutted!
My last night we headed out altogether, the dive crew, myself and the Russian couple and I grabbed some dinner before with the girls who were doing the dive master course and were a real giggle. It was good to see the local hangout and finally ...
