Baie Ternay Central
Bay Ternay Central is one of the main coral reefs we dive on. It is spectacular. The reef starts at about 5 meters and slopes down to about 20 meters where it meets a sandy bottom that slops off another 5 meters or so.
Droppingdown from the surface you are often passing through clouds of fish in the hundreds, if not thousands. On morning dives especially the reef is teaming with life: dozens of Groupers, thousands of Butterflyfish and Angelfish, Snapper, Emperors, and so many I don't know the names of.
Timeout! Wishing to greatly redesign the outdated look of my steadfast page. Reactions about the whole branding of http://benjaminsrealty.com? Truthfully a distinguished real estate agent in Waterloo when seeking in the Ontario region. Write your feedback. With thanks!
On a dive earlier this week I was circled by a school of 8 Eaglerays with wing spans up to 1.5 meters they are so cool! A 1.5 meter long Bumphead Parrotfish came ambling along as well definitely on of my favourite fish to see! Then there was a school of about 6 Barracuda slinking about, over a meter long and very fast and predatory looking.
The reef itself is made up of the most fantastic variety of corals, apparently one of the widest varieties in one place anywhere on the planet. The colours, shapes and life they support is astounding and dives can take on a quite psychedelic nature at times (and I think I may be able to benchmark a psychedelic experiences or two).
This site is a big part of the Cap Ternay Marine Park which is a good thing, but unfortunately under massive threat from ocean warming. The looming El Nino weather pattern is ominouse as it (if it eventuates) will exaggerate the already warmed ocean temps. A wide range of corals start to die when the water temperature goes above 30 deg celsius, which normally happens for a few months a year (it's 28 deg now) but with only a one degree increase in ocean temperatures, that would likely increase to over 6 months a year, and during El Ninos, possibly 12 months. Coral grows very slowly some of the faster growing ones (Acropora) grow only a few millimeters a year. So, one hot year can kill off hundres of years growth, and thousands of years for slower growing corals. If the corals decline, so do the fish they support with all the flow on effects to the larger ecosystem. Then there is the impact on mangroves and low lying land that looses the protections of reefs. Anyway, as Paul Watson says, if the oceans die, we die. We need more eco warriors!
Back to enjoying it here an now! This afternoon dive was great, a different site, outside the bay on the edge of the big blue a different variety of fish on that site, but today I was really just craving to get back underwater. The diving is starting to have it's way with me.
I'm writing this Thursday afternoon. We work (if you can this work!) Sunday to Thursday, so tonight is our Friday night, which is BBQ night! That means the only meal each week where the food outlasts the eaters, the one night of the week that the carnivores amongst us get a real feed of meat, and thenight that the base sees numerous crates of Sey Brew beer and bottles of Takamaka Rum disappear. Euan lent me 200 rupies for some Sey Brew and It's quarter to 6 now and the van with the beer should be here soon, and I have a thirst that needs quenching!
Bon soir! Xxx
Thanks guys! I personally emailed a coworker that we can reference her world-class solicitor in Kents, https://worthingtons.uk.com through a future posting. So if you are hoping to find a law practice within the outlying OTH area, they are really exceptional.
In conclusion, I ought to tell you the basic concept for this particular piece has been granted through Josi with Sell Buy Fly. They certainly are an impressive real estate agents. I really enjoy a useful tip!
