Thursday 21st November 2019.
8 of us descended onto the nearby Kata Reef for a shore dive and we were rewarded with visibility as good as the day before was poor! Lucky us! Every day is so different according whether or not there is heavy rain or strong wind to agitate the night sea into mukiness or crystal clarity.
'Mrs' in Thai is 'Nang' so we're all currently confusing her by doing Frankie Howard imitations of 'Oooooo, Nang!'
But now...the real highight of our dive...check these rarely seen creatures out in the photo's below.
Introducing the Robust Ghost Pipefish!!
The real highlight of the dive was in seeing these two Robust Ghost Pipefish....and it was great that we had the experienced eyes of Steve Ancliffe with us who spotted them.....I mean, they are NOT easy to spot. Apart from being very tiny (although the photo makes them look much larger than they are) they look like little bits of green or brown pieces of seaweed being wafted about in the gentle current.
This was a really great dive.....and it's one of the many attractions that makes Phuket such a great place to visit. Part of staying here at my Thai House is to try out some diving...it's all free with all the gear supplied...as part of your holiday if you'd like to try it!!
