Third Set Of Open Water Dives

April 2008

 

After a day on the beach and carefully examining our itinerary again, we discovered we had an extra day in Sharm and could go diving yet again.

 

Unfortunately, Chrissy had a bunged up nose and couldn't dive.  I still managed to get three dives in and look at more reefs and more fish.

 

I actually saw a sea turtle but unfortunately, the camera was out of juice and I couldn't take a picture of it gliding through the water just metres away from us whilst it was chewing away at some floating jelly thing.  Sad thing was that I'd bought a spare battery just for the trip but hadn't thought to charge it up and bring it.  Duh!
