Had scuba dive with James on Mike Nicholls' (the local dive charter) nursery reef (a good spot for newbie divers -I haven't done scuba for a long time - and it suited me to be in a dive spot without current and quite shallow - we went to 11 metres - the reef drops off more, but we were erring on the side of caution.) In among the huge limestone boulders the fish followed us like a pair of bubble-blowing pied pipers (it was bizarre - FAR more fish behind us than before us. At one stage it looked like it was raining parrot-fish with their irridescent blue semicircular patterned scales and junior railway official prissy mouths... We saw about 25 different species, including a small shark - about a meter long, and a thornback ray, and an amazing amount of invertebrate life - no crays and just one abalone but many interesting sponges and other beasties.
We were down under in Down Under for about an hour and a quarter... and came back to find the first containter has been delivered. They start unpacking tomorrow, and sadly our James flies out.
We have furniture. I think I'd rather keep the kids and get my dogs and cats. I miss them terribly -especially when I need surrogate kids ;-).
