Isn't it funny how sometimes in life, it's the small things that count. Today, I realized a dream. I saw Sea Horses. They were every bit as amazing as the Manta Ray was. I sat there watching them for a bit before what is most probably the weirdest creature that I have ever seen came along. A Cuttle fish. They are very alien looking, and they just float along, looking like they should be eaten, because when I was in Vietnam, I really enjoyed eating them !!! There was also a night dive scheduled.  Luckily, Dave brought a case of  tonic and a couple bottles of gin along. Fred decided that as tonight was designated gin and tonic night, he wouldn't dive, and with Meike pouring triples, by the time the night divers came up, we were slaughtered. We do have one problem though, Dave is constantly walking around showing his builder's crack. Todays word for Karsten. Builder's Crack. How do you explain it? A picture paints a 1000 words.

On another note, PA and Benny opened a cage and saved loads of fish as they swam to safety. Sadly, a Bat fish had been in there to long and it's face was beaten up and it couldn't swim properly. Sadly, it will die, but at least they saved a load of other fish.
