Waning Gibbous Moon
Glorious, glorious morning. Three of us head in this time, aiming for the right side of the island getting the deeper part over with first.
I soon lose my fellow swimmers and it is a bit wavy, but I try and keep the edge of the island in my view.
At the corner of the island we meet up again.
We hover about looking at what’s below. The water is getting so much warmer than over the winter.
Beautiful textures and colours with glints of sparkles. We swim along the front of the island over this magical, lush carpet of underwater garden.
We then swim along the very edge, I spot a bouy with mussels growing underneath the water.What a start to the morning.
