We tied Baby Beez to the wreck marker ball and as soon as entered the water we knew this was going to be a very special snorkel, leaving the sunk and sad hull behind us we headed for the reef that has very quickly become Bear’s favourite. Groups of Mr Fish. They gathered, skittered and re-grouped. We spent over half an hour with a young, male turtle. He scruffed about in the current finding bits and bobs to eat, every so often he surfaced for air and went right back to feeding. At one point he looked as if he was standing on his head as the current swirled and buffeted him. I took a few videos, the turtles constant companion was a harlequin fish – now opportunistic feeder – finding titbits to eat as his big companion uprooted stuff. It was the first time we have witnessed the efficient and quite accurate use of flippers as anchors as well as terrific swimming tools. I took a general video following one fish until another came into view and so on, we can just make out the chomping noise of the huge parrotfish. In the water it is quite noisy and when these grinding machines poop – no wonder there is so much sand..........great clouds of the stuff trickles out.
