March 25th, 2009 - I’m trying to leave this island. I really am. Yesterday I bought a ticket for the boat to the mainland and last night I packed. I didn’t make it.....again. The spectacular dive I had this afternoon may have been influential. Fortunately, another diver brought along a camera and let the guide do the shooting. It was super. Super duper. That's me trying to hump a turtle (below).
We also spotted a Stonefish, a Leaf Scorpion Fish, a Moray Eel, and a species of nudibranch. No clue how the guide can spot Stonefish. They blend perfectly. The other day I spent three minutes looking directly at one before I realized what it was. Since they are also extremely poisonous it would be nice to be able to pick them out of a line up.
