Clody, rain and windy as we departed Ishigaki island today Σ(‘◉⌓◉’) The Ishigaki marathon is also held today and there must be some hardcore runners in this weather! As for the diving conditions, it was rough! We avoided the worst of it by diving in Osaki area and the visibility was ok on the first dive✨ A green sea turtle had squeezed itself under a rock to keep stable in the swell♪
A robust ghost pipefish was also swaying over the sand perfectly camouflaged as a dead leaf(*^▽^*)
In the shallow parts, the visibility was a bit muddled on the first dive and it got even worse on the second diveΣ（ﾟдﾟlll）I’m glad we got to see the beautiful corals before the visibility went bad!
On the second dive, the visibility from the surface was really bad. Some other people were snorkeling but I wonder if they saw anything at all?
Below, a clown fish opened its mouth really wide (´⊙ω⊙`)
It will be windy and high waves tomorrow! We’ll stay at home and keep warm ^___^
