Making new friends in the sea

April 22nd 2015
We missed our chance spotting turtles back on *that secret island* a week ago and so we have made it our sole purpose to seek out a place where such animals are in abundance.

Turtle heaven and rooster hell
How fabulous that you got to swim with so many turtles, and that you had a camera that could capture it. You've definitely found some sweet spots in the Philippines.

Turtle heaven and rooster hell!!
You definitely caught the essence of our experience with that title. I agree long journeys are not too bad when the destination is worth it. I write this having just waited 8 hours for a nightbus at a station, with the 10 hour journey only just begun. So far dare I say it, but its been good. As with the camera its just an average point and shoot camera, but we have a 'dicapac' casing that allows us to use it in water. Not as good as a go pro, but a okay alternative. Thanks once again Tara.

The people we talk with speak so highly of Scuba diving in the phillipines and it seems you both got to experience some wonderful sealife there already . The Philippines is truly a special place. I hear another trip coming on very soon for you guys.

Thank you, we both were pretty impressed with it too when we looked at our pictures out of the water.
