We left Beez at nine, picked up Gary and Bev (Wirraway), found our chaps at the dock and waited the few minutes it took for John and Catherine (Afar VI), Sandra, Paul and Adam (Serica) and John from Hybreasail, our drivers and guide to form a merry bunch, about to enjoy a day out away from festivities and chores – first stop, drift snorkelling off Rowa Island. Whilst we saw nothing spectacular (sadly no Nemo), we enjoyed a few new species of coral and fish, that either skittered away to hide or almost got into our masks, demanding to be photographed. There were the usual photo-bombers, the ‘what-I-lack-in-colour-I’ll-make-up-for-in-attitude’ and the downright cute. What we saw was healthy - amongst the dead, fallen and new growth in water that was crystal clear and warm enough to enjoy staying in for ages. No sooner we left the panga, we were in a coral garden with masses to see. The clams were beautifully coloured, we only saw one worm, one Christmas worm but plenty of casual blue starfish. Enjoy.
