We snorkelled around 'Split Rock' which was teaming with fish. Thanks to Di's niece Laura, who has just completed her Masters in Marine Biology at Southampton, for the species identifications!
|These fish aren't shy -they came up to us, some of them even nibbling our arms and legs!|
|Scissortail Sergeants (Abudefduf sexfasciatus)|
|Golden Damselfish (Amblyglyphidodon aureus)|
|Bullethead Parrotfish (Chlorurus sordidus) nibbling the coral|
|Laura's best guess on this one was a Lemonpeel Anglefish (Centropyge flavissima)|
We're now back in Savusavu for a last replenishment of fruit and veg from the wonderful market. Tonight we're celebrating Kerry's birthday aboard Sel Citron and then tomorrow we'll head east, weather permitting. There are some stronger SE winds arriving at the weekend so we need to get to a good sheltered anchorage near the island of Taveuni to wait them to pass.
