Giant Kelp Gardens

Fish in a bottle

Sea Anemone

    Sea Horses


I forget the name of this one, but it look like a type of Anemone:

Fantastic pics. Thanks for showing them. Have you ever been on one of those glass bottomed boats? I wonder if those pics would be good? We went on one from Santolina Island once.
This should be in your neck of the woods.

Thanks GOYs :) Glad you all enjoyed the pics.
Chris- I haven't been on a glass-bottomed boat before. Sounds like fun though :) Did you see anything interesting on your trip?

Lots of different fish basically. They feed them so that there are great shoals of them swimming under the boat. I'm pretty sure there was some sort of commentary from the guy with the boat, but he spoke so fast with a strong Californan accent that we Brits couldn't follow him. It was quite a few years ago so things may have changed.
