Heavy Weather

Wx-Rainfall and heavy clouds everywhere except Layang Layang. Sea Calm.

The weather was good and bad today. In the morning weather was sunny but there was a thunderstorm developing in KK and half way to the island. We were supposed to have 6 flights today but only 5 was completed before the heavens opened up in KK. The pilots did not want to fly the last flight for safety reasons. 7 Japanese stranded on the island and missed their flight home to Japan. They will get connected tomorrow hopefully. Goes to show how remote we are and the weather controls everything, including what you see or don't see underwater.

Back into the water and so, what's new you ask? Nothing except for same old school of hammerheads, 2 pygmy sea horse (a sudden increase of 100%) and 15 Russian divers. Lucky devils saw the hammerheads too and on their first dive.

Only topside shot of the orca. For the rest of the body underwater, just imagine the white patches and bloody big mouth.

Until next time. Bye.
