This site was similar to the first site, with rocky outcrops covered in growth and sloping to a sandy bottom.  Again, there was lots of life including one bit of rock where we found a white leaf fish as well as a tiny ghost pipe fish that really just looked like a bit of weed floating around.  There was also a cute little shrimp sitting amongst the tentacles of an anenome, but would come out waving its claws around when the DM would poke it with her metal pointer.  So cute!

Although our group wasn’t extremely large, the rest of the group were mostly older Japanese folk with really bad buoyancy.  I’d be slowly floating along, minding my own business, when one of them would just come up underneath me, flapping around.  One of the ladies came up with a whole lot of broken feather star bits stuck to her wetsuit around the knees where she’d just been crashing into the reef. Hmmmm.

I would love to know what you think...
