Earplugs were the order of the day with about 70 children in our Bunaken restaurant to celebrate Rebecca’s birthday. Maybe some of you will notice the family resemblance, as many of them are the children from our staff. It was great fun! The Sunday School teachers kept order excellently.There is still plenty of cake!
This lovely this Clown frogfish was trying to show his best side to Paul and Kirsten Simms,when Kirsten took this great shot. He was just hanging out on the wall waiting to be spotted.That’s harder said than done! He is one of several sightings in the last few weeks. Thanks to Kirsten for sending it.
Hooray for Chris Thorpe, who finally found a way to overcome her acute sea sickness, so that she could actually enjoy being on a boat whilst doing her Open Water course!
Chris’ husband, Ton, is an experienced diver and so are their son and daughter. Ton had waited 10 years for Chris to join him underwater. Now at last his wish has come true. Chris is more than happy to put her seasickness days behind her and abolutely loves diving.
Chris used a relief band device for seasickness, which sends a gentle electric current along her wrist and magically keeps her nausea at bay. Obviously she remembered to remove it before every dive!
Now the Thorpes can’t wait for their first underwater family get-together….and many more happy diving holidays to come!
Bravo to Ton for his patience and persistence and especially to Chris for never saying ‘never’!
Recently we had Josef & Vera Litt from the Czech Republic staying with us at both Two Fish Lembeh and Bunaken.
Josef is an avid and excellent underwater photographer and has recently set up Help The Seas organisation. Their purpose is to help raise funds for conservation projects and Help The Sea is currently supporting Seacology and Archelon.
Shortly he has assured us that he will be posting photos that he took in both Bunaken and Lembeh, so please go to www.helptheseas.org to have a look and to find out more information about Help The Seas.
After another busy but extremely fun and critter-crammed month here at Two Fish Divers Lembeh we were unable to make much headway on starting the development of our House Reef. However finally over the last few days we have been able to get out there and do a couple of dives and some further surveying of the site.
On the first dive we spent most of our time identifying the areas that we thought looked suitable. On the following dives we noted distances, headings, natural reference points and were able to draw up a rough map.
We are lucky to have an existing structure – The Oyster House – which already attracts a variety of marine life – long-snout pipefish, Banggai Cardinalfish, Razorfish and juvenile Barramudi Cod – we hope that our new ‘additions’ to the reef will have a similar impact!
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions with regards to developing artificial reefs then please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
