Mola-mola, the return

  Indonesia: Bali - July 2008

Eh yes ! I am a little lucky. I saw a mola-mola today at Crystal Bay again. One time is not customary this morning: excellent visibility and little current, both for this beautiful first dive, and for the second, Toyah Pakeh Bay.

Happy divers!

Moray

Besides my new friend mola-mola, I had today, in the absence of strong current, all the leisure to photograph some other interesting bugs.

The unloved moray eels, which for my part I like very much, win the palm (of diving): the most beautiful of the day are a moray with white dots and a blue moray eel.

I also met some nice nudies along the way, as well as the usual fauna of parrot fish, angels, butterflies, groupers, etc. as well as pretty clean shrimps and a tiny red crab stashed in a gorgon.

A tip-white shark has even pointed a little far, in the blue ... Another very nice day!

  Indonesia: Bali - July 2008

  1. Yes, yes, really nice this little cafe, by the way, I'm still there Today, no beach, some photos-shooting sessions in the streets of the village: this village is adorable, with its typical streets a bit like in Mykonos.
    Last night, we had a live concert, it was beautiful, Greek atmosphere, everyone dancing, except us ... .. (not that I refuse to dance on vacation ... ..But I do not know a step of Greek dance and I would have rather bothered everyone by taking my feet in theirs ... !!!)
    You see, finally you see a lot of mola-mola !!!! Otherwise, these moray eels are really not nice to me ... ..Even if I recognize that they are beautiful .... but scary ....
    I kiss you hard! See you soon !!

  2. 😀 Super all your comments on your travels ... I revel!
    My husband and I leave on Sunday, August 3, 2008 for Bunaken and Lembeh Strait. We have never been there, but I honestly believe we will not be disappointed.
    We go down to Christiane Muller from Froggies, and then to the Lembeh resort. We are on start in blok !!! And I dream already reading your days spent live. It's extraordinary!
    Good luck to you Have a good time 😉

  3. @ Helene:

    In the place of Greek dance, you can try Balinese dancing ...
    😉

    These poor murens are not very scary, though. They remain nestled in their hole, most often, terrified by our bubbles. They just go out to see what's going on.

    Have fun with the Greeks! See you soon.
    😀

    @ Jackie:

    Bunaken + Lembeh, you should regaler !!! Two types of dive very different, but just as exciting. You will be fine, at Christiane, all the staff is very caring, and the guides are really good under the water ...

    I am delighted that you have enjoyed browsing Small Bubbles Elsewhere ... Feel free to let me know your impressions on your return!

    Good luck in Sulawesi!

  4. Hi Corinne, :-)
    Contente que tu m’es répondu, je trouve ça génial de pourvoir parler en « direct » avec une p’tite Française au bout du monde. Bravo à toi à ton super blog et au web!!!! qui nous permet d’en profiter!!! J’en ai l’eau à la bouche de toutes les merveilles que tu nous fais partager…..
    Voudrais tu me dire STP s’il y a des moustiques à Bunaken et à Lembeh,:?: car j’ai tendance à les attirer;:(
    Is not it too hot at night in the bungalows:?:

    To introduce me a little, I live in the Seine and marl where it is cold 18 ° 22 ° maxi and cloudy .. and I keep little bout'chous all day. and I'm pretty tired, in short I can not wait to leave ... .. and escape ... ..
    I wish you very good dives again, have fun because we feel a joy through your stories and frankly it gives me a smile!
    Merci à toi 🙂 Super le mola mola 😀 Je n’en ai jalais vu!!!!
    Maybe you will see another one today:?:
    Bonne bulles et bisous de France:-)

  5. Hi Jackie,

    Yes, internet, it has a small magic, when we are at the other end of the world ... I did not see mola-mola today, but the dive was for once more quiet, with a little less current, which has given me time to flash some nudibranchs.

    So, to answer your questions: I do not remember being very bothered by the mosquitoes, Bunaken or Lembeh, and yet I tend to attract them too ... Of memory, he It seems to me that there may have been a little more in Bunaken than in Lembeh. Well, no, I have never been too hot in any bungalow in Sulawesi. For my part, a fan is sufficient in general. And often, it happens that I do not even use it.

    I wish you an excellent trip! Good preparations.
    🙂
