3rd September 2006

weather: sunny all day
sea condition: calm, vis: 15m

guides: Ron, Allan, Nina, Sophia, Jay, Lee

The weather has been beautiful today as well as the sea condition here. Like we said in our previous post, leopard sharks have been sighted these past few days. Yesterday, Lee and Nina's group saw another leopard shark at Barracuda Point, and Lee's group saw another one at South Point, lying on the slope, so we could get close to it to have a closer look! Other than that, school of barracuda and jack fish were seen as well, not forgetting all the turtles and white tip sharks.

Macro divers has some great time finding macro stuff as well. Some of the macro subjects that we saw around here for the last few days are flamboyant cuttlefish, frogfish, nudibranch, ribbon eels, peacock mantis shrimp, gobies, ghost shrimps.

By the way, Bobby is on holiday now back to Kota Kinabalu. We at the dive center wish him Happy Holiday !! (translation: "Come back faster!! and remember to buy us whisky when you come back!!")

Below are some of the pictures by Jaime Wallace (she and Shane had real hard time deciding which pictures to give us because all of them are nice!! We understand that too well Jaime, cause we are all photographers here as well! For those of you who want to see more of her pictures, feel free to go to her website, address on the pictures below but they may take time to upload those pictures on the site after their holiday here, so be patience guys.)
