This week in Lembongan we had a very memorable dive with a cute little thornback cowfish hovering over some corals in Crystal Bay, and is the first time I saw one.
The little cowfish looks a little bit like a juvenile boxfish and gets its name from the two horns on top of its head, and its turn out that this cute thing is actually poisonous!
My third and final destination on my divemaster journey was the Two Fish Lembongan dive center, and although I pride myself on my ability to “rough it,” being somewhere a bit less remote was a pleasant change after Bunaken and Lombok. Lembongan was a charming little island, with lots of good food choices, and some great coffee shops to watch the breathtaking sunsets from.
When I initially decided to do my Divemaster Internship in Indonesia, I thought that choosing a dive center would be a difficult decision. Upon discovering that Two Fish Divers offered a DM internship spread over multiple locations the decision quickly became a no-brainer for me.
Mowing the pool
If the pool in the resort would have been the yard, I would have mowed the whole area at that time. One of the Divemaster assignments is to be able to demonstrate the confined water skills and one of them is the BCD removal and replacement. The first time I practiced the skills, I used my pocket weights instead of a weight belt. Well, I will never make THAT mistake again…
