So today's little dive on the House Reef was a real success - I collected 2  bags full of trash / treasure... which amounted to - 17 plastic water bottles, 18 bottle caps, 2 plastic shampoo bottles, 4 food wraps / pots, 1 metal can and 2 flip flops - I'm just not going to comment on the flip flops any more!!! Great visibility on the dive and I also saw a lion fish, leopard flounder, lots of butterfly fish and a a spotted puffer! At the moment I feel like a real eco warrior - protecting the ocean planet one dive at a time!

Woo hoo!! Day 3 of my pledge to collect trashy marine treasure was a great success. Back out on the House Reef and today's haul was: 16 plastic drinks bottles, 1 plastic shampoo bottle, 16 plastic food pots (yoghurt pots), 1 flip flop (I still don't understand the amount of flip flops out there!), 1 piece of nylon rope and a badminton shuttlecock?????? Job done for the day. Back out with my collection bag tomorrow - one person can make a difference - in just 3 days that's a lot of plastic.......

I am loving the Project AWARE Trash is Treasure campaign and I'm pledging that from tomorrow I will endeavor to recover trash on every dive for the rest of the month AND on days when I am not diving I will go and clean up the beach! I can't arrange clean ups this month as we are so busy on the island but I am taking the Project AWARE slogan of One Dive At A Time to heart - if any one is reading this - why not do the same!!!?? Let's clean our seas and favorite dive spots!!!

This week has been a busy one for mola mola sightings around Nusa Penida. The water temperature around the islands has dropped from 30 degrees (which we experience from November to May) to an average temperature this week of just 24 and some even colder thermo clines. Whilst this means we have been shivering a bit it also brings the mola mola! The main spots where we have been seeing them are Buyuk on the North coast of Nusa Penida, Blue Corner on Lembongan and also Crystal Bay on the South coast of Penida.
