Video camera decided to break last night. I went to put a new tape in, it spit the old one out, then broke.
Photos to follow, wifi not strong enough to upload.
Today we dived on the remains of a sperm whale. The skull was 12ft long, the eye sockets 3ft across. The vertebrae would have made coffee tables, they reminded me of a stumpery. Very sad, but from its size it probably died of old age. It has been there three months, the flesh has completely gone and it is being colonised by marine organisms. It will form a new reef and life will go on.
The weather here has been good so far. I hope my polytunnel has not blown away. The aussie housesitter was shown where extra bricks are to hold it down.
Have a good day folks.
