Have taken a break from designing jewelery with Gregg this afternoon to have a bit of a gloat about the little jaunt I took on the boat this morning to Silanguin Island; a little slice of heaven just beyond the watercolour mountains I stare straight at, out the office window. I had a whole stretch of glittering black sand beach to myself. It was beautiful. Enough said. I found beautiful shells that washed up on the shore before my eyes and my snazzy new sandals on my freshly painted feet, which cost half the price that they would back home... the sandals not the feet... were snatched clean off my foot by a freak wave that flew up the side of the boat. It took 15 minutes, half a tank of fuel and some skillful maneuvering by Captain Rodger to retrieve it.... Totally worth it!
Found a new dive site yesterday in Triboa Bay; a steep wall of beautiful hard and soft corals and the busiest concentration of fish I have seen in Subic Bay. We will be back in the next day of two to suss out the rest of this reef and hopefully attach a float so we don't have to put an anchor near the coral. Here is where I saw the first and only orange nudibranch I have seen here; so precious! There was some amazing felt-like purple coral that, Yes, I know you're not meant to touch but this one felt like cotton wool!
Gregg wants to call it 'The Drop Off' but I think it should be given something cooler like '[email protected]'s Wall' but any other suggestions would be appreciated?
