Of Rain and Hammerheads

Wx- Rain almost everyday. Sea condition dependent upon the wind speed. UW- vis dropped slightly during the raining periods. Current is normal

What do you do when you are having a beer with friends by the pool after the last dive of the day, enjoying the sun, waiting for sunset and it starts to rain (really pissing on you) with some wind blowing in your face? Stay put, ignore the damn rain and continue enjoying the beer (mad dogs and Englishmen). What's a bit of rain when you are having a cold beer (drenched cold beer).

It has been pouring rain 5 out of 6 days of the week. Sometimes as long as 3 to 4 hours. And we still got our BBQ night in once a week, but subject to change of day due to weather

Baby whale shark still cruising around. Last sighting was yesterday. The hot layer of water is almost gone. Corals returning back to normal. No damage done. hammerheads schools and mobulars still sighted. Jacks, white tips, dogtooth and the other stuff still around.

Next month is the Photo Competition again. Should have more interesting stuff to talk about then. Take care and bye. Pictures courtesy of azumi
