It’s been a while since I posted pictures of us diving, after all, after diving for a month straight getting 21 dives under our belt, we spent almost 3 months away from it, taking trips to non-diving locations.
In El Nido, I was able to get another 6 dives under my belt when I convinced my friend Liz to go diving with me. She was a diver, but hasn’t done anything for over 10 years and was quite nervous about it, since it’s been so long. But the dive master pulled her aside on our first dive, and after 5 minutes of a reminder, she was back in diving shape and ready to go!
Here are some of our pictures from day 1. I had a really hard time, as I forgot my camera thingy that absorbs moisture, so my lens kept fogging up. I had to delete a ton of pictures that just didn’t come out nice enough…
Crocodile Fish. Can you spot it? (Click to enlarge)
Tube-dwelling Anemone (yes, I had to look that up!)
A worm! No, really!
A cute little ray!!!
A juvenile Rockmover Wrasse (you can click to enlarge both pictures)
I love these sponge that look like vases…
Back by popular demand, the blue starfish!
Bubble coral! (I think it’s my favorite coral!)
Can you see the little see-through shrimp? (You can click to enlarge)
Another HUGE sponge
Nemo! In an anemone that sort of looks like a bunch of little boobs with long nipples, no?
Another anemone (love them!)
A baby turtle!
We even went diving inside a cave!
HUGE puffer fish. No, really, it must have been 3 feet long
Tomorrow, pictures from our second day of diving (we saw another turtle, a school of yellow snapper and a mantis shrimp)! And we saw SO MANY nudibranch on these dives, that those deserve a post of their own…
