Ooppp, I send the first pic double! I meant another one!


Please send me the other one, and I can replace it. However, I love that shot of the coral reef and like seeing it again.

Yes, Garce, THOSE are toilets! We all must laugh when we saw it, couldnīt we imagine it what the diving teacher told us before about SANITAIRE articles! Laughing


I wasn't sure what that stuff was. It sorta looked like links in a chain. Do you have any more information about that wreck?

It was the Jolanda, the name of the ship! It sank in 1981 while a storm, I think. I found a good article about it, itīs better to read that than mine describing! Laughing

It's about that national park zone we had our boat trip to!

I also found a similar card about the wreck, it shows where the toilets lay.
They told us a storm a few years ago took the fornt of the wreck deeper, so the toilets are only to watch!

Here's Akka's other picture of the coral reef.

This is not absolutely clear, because of the camera plastic, but again the
colours of the reef are awesome!


I love these gorgeous photos!

Well, for some pictures, the most, I used the digital camera, that was in a special bag:

http://landandwaterleisure.co.uk/catalog/images/02441.gif similar to this.
And at the boat trip I used a one way underwater camera, thatīs why it took so long for developing here! Rolling Eyes

To hanlde the camera in the Aquapack was not easy; everytime I saw clean through the..searcher?
, the zoom wasnīt clear or so. Because of the water pressure the plastic wasnīt straight?! Know what
I mean?


Oh yes! I've used one of those bags before, but not underwater - just in splashy boats and heavy rain.

Teri take as much snorkling breath as you can! Indeed the underwater world seems to be more coloured than the deserts! Laughing
