... pinnacles and coral, very easy to get lost in! The entry was a bit hairy, over rocks and soft coral. I got spiked by something and thought I was going to be subject to searing pain, but thankfully I wasn't. The day before today was similarly calm. I dived the lighthouse reef and was lucky enough to see another turtle! Will got up at 2pm yesterday, disgraceful. Then the new guy Matt arrived! It's nice to know I'm not ...

... desolate and unfulfilled. To our east a vast body of water extends to the north and south, its salty waters unable to quench this thirsty, desert landscape. We pass a modest seaside resort, greeting us with the words “LAUGH” and “LOVE” written with small white rocks, amongst a well watered green lawn, a welcoming gesture to fellow English speaking tourists.
Being the gateway to a world famous dive site, I expected ...
