When the water level gets too low, large boats can’t get into the Big Lagoon anymore. The boats end up outside the Lagoon and tied to a mooring buoy while their guests either kayak or snorkel + walk in.
Today’s post was going to be one long entry for Ailsa’s “Oceans” photo challenge in honor of World Oceans Day. However, it’s going to take me some time to sort through my favorite photos taken during the past week so I figured I’d be better off making it a series of posts instead 🙂 Presenting the super friendly hawksbill sea turtle I met this morning in Abdeens Reef!
Diving. It’s awesome 😀
More photos will be up by tomorrow! (I hope. Haha.)
So. The reason behind the lack of decent posts for the past week is because I’ve been accompanying an underwater videographer during his dives here in El Nido. It may not look it but diving three times a day is exhausting, made especially so by strong currents in the dive sites. The upside? I took some pretty nice photos, I think 🙂
More photos to come!
This was at the end of the MIR Front dive with the Comeco crew last February 23. Much thanks to Kuya Mel for taking it! 😀
Mavic and I got to stay out in El Nido town last night with some friends from UP MSI. YAHOOO!!! Thank you to Ate Mags, Fleur, Kuya Mel, and Renmar for letting us crash with them last night (hey, I did help somewhat in making the cages :D). It was a great night filled with food, friends, and alcohol. I crashed earlier than everybody else because I had to wake up at 5:15am to catch the 6am boat back to Miniloc. It was exhausting but so worth it.
