I Found Eggs!

Friday night after vespers I went night diving with the Crystal and Ken at Lau Lau Beach from 9-11pm. I really wanted to catch the coral spawning. We went just beyond the reef and stayed pretty shallow. We saw plenty of eggs on the surface of the ocean but I didn't get a chance to actually see the coral release the eggs. I waited around some coral a bit but I saw no action. I think I saw the pink eggs on the coral but heck I'm not an expert so I'm not sure! I think it was suppose to look like this video clip that I found on Youtube.

Visibility was poor and there was a bit of a surge that night. I ended up feeling sea sick on the way back to shore. To top it off my batteries died in my flashlight and I forgot to bring a back up one. But still, night diving is exciting! Sure you still have a creepy feeling in the back of your mind that something scary may be lurking in the darkness but that's what makes the experience worth it-finding something unexpected.

That something lurking in the darkness was me, but I was probably out a lot deeper than you. Good thing or there'd be pictures of you on my website for my night dive sightings.

Hey Bev, check out my post from July 9. We caught the coral spawning on the reef near Dimple and I got some video and pics posted!
