A Stormy EDGE Trip

It’s hard to know where to start when looking through photos of the last year but this trip is one that is particularly striking a chord with me at the moment.

In June Rado and I organized a staff EDGE trip to one of my favourite dive sites in Velondriake, Vorea. We planned on carrying out a second dive that day but got caught in a freak rain storm on the way home and decided it was best to leave it to another day!

A Horastrea indica colony. All the colonies at this site seem to have these orange spots, we suspect that they are either acoel worms or grazing marks.

Blastomussa, my favourite hard coral genera!

Who said it was meant to be dry season?!

This guy will always be the best captain in my eyes. Never forgotten.

Overall it was a great trip to a stunning dive site with incredible friends and lots of giggles :)

Until the next adventure,

Keep Smiling :)

Back on UK European Soil!

Well, it has been a while. The hopes that the internet connection in Southwest Madagascar would be good enough to keep up with blog posts were perhaps optimistically high. Or maybe that should be rephrased taking into account my patience with the Internet connection!

Anyway, with a slight change in blog format, I thought I might focus on some of the pictures I have taken over the last year and, I suppose, moving forward onto the next adventures!

Having said that can’t say I have taken many spectacular pictures since being back in the UK and this post is now more words than pictures. Great start! I’ll leave you with this brilliant welcome home cake that my mum and sister made for my return. Yes, it is in the shape of a nudibranch! Obsessed much?! I LOVE IT!!

For now I am signing off on French soil actually, I’m here visiting the family for a few days :)

Keep smiling :)
