Dive 1, 7:30, Black Rock
N8 47.868 E119 50.440
Hmmm — 6:30 morning rain. We’re going to be rained on in Bird Islet in a few days! Not a nice thought.
Before the dive, our German dive group mates ordered pygmy seahorses, and guess what — our guide Welmer found one. Hippocampus Denise at 20 meters! There was a perfectly round barrel sponge, and we had our moments with it. Afterwards we went towards the surface, with lots of acropora mounds surrounded by lots of white sand.
