Since I've been in Siquijor, I dive and re-dive every day... Yesterday, our guide, Neal, took us to discover the bottom of Salagdoong Beach, a beach that I had already explored, on the "land" side during my motorcycle ride last week.
The dive is along a small slope gently sloping, alternating coral groves and sandy passages.
There is a lot of life here. I give myself nudibranchs, these small colored sea slugs, which are a subject of choice in macro photography. ????
I even caught two of them copulating! Seeing nudibranches mating is not an ordinary show...
I also saw the much sought after Mandarin fish, nice little orange and blue fish, but so shy that I did not have time to try to take a picture ... He quickly returned to hide under the coral at my approach.
Maybe I'll have more luck this afternoon, with the house-reef from the Kiwi Dive Center, the reef just across the beach, which I haven't explored yet. Neal promised me more mandarin fish... we'll see!
Between the dives, the motorcycle rides, the tricycle rides in Larena (where there is the internet center that allows me to post some posts on the blog) and the naps in the hammock, I really do not see the time pass ... In principle, I am heading for Dumaguete and Dauin on Negros Island, just opposite.
Objective: to dive (again), especially on the reef of the islet of Apo, one of the most famous sites in the area.
