The wind blows from the south over Ishigaki island (≧∀≦) We went out for fun dives♪A calm day on the ocean☆ We could even go to Manta point! And we saw manta rays*･゜ﾟ･*:.｡..｡.:*･'(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)’･*:.｡. .｡.:*･゜ﾟ･* One of them was very big♡
The corals at this dive point are growing steadily☆ Year by year, they build a beautiful underwater garden.
A green sea turtle was relaxing on a bed of soft corals(*^▽^*)
The ocean will be calm tomorrow again! Looking forward to diving at Yonehara, it’s been a long time since I went there.
However, looks like the wind will turn to north again on the day after so I have to drive the boat back to Sakieda again σ(^_^;)
The wind around Ishigaki island has picked up compared to yesterdayΣ(‘◉⌓◉’) Today, the sun was shining and I thought it was fairly warm but our guest got very cold! (＞＜) We saw five giant cuttlefish. It’s still early in the season and they haven’t started laying eggs yet so they are still shy around divers. I hope we can see lots of them this year.
An ornate pipefish♫ Finding creatures like this is the best part of diving(*^▽^*)
A vivid blue frost nudibranch ☆
A tiny anemone shrip. I found it in a big thriving anemone so I hope it will grow up and become much bigger♪
An electric clam blinked back as I shone the flashlight onto it. I wonder why they do that. Is there something else besides divers’ lights that shine on them down under? σ(^_^;)
Corals in Osaki☆ Like a big forest, but under the ocean (≧∀≦)
As I write this I can already hear the north wind howling again Σ(‘◉⌓◉’) It will get cold tonight! Take care everyone, I hope we will get more sun again soon ＾＾
