    Finally a sunny morning with no wind in the weekend!! So good to get back on the water. Flat water, warm day, no one in sight, it was perfect! =) Saw so many fishes jumping out of the water and little flounders zooming away to hide in the sand. I have rarely seen the water so clear, it was like doing one of these glass bottom boats in tropical water (though some parts were really gross, the oil sleek was really bad and the smell wasn't nice either!). Also picked up a fully grown specimen of plastic bag -and can see how easily it is for marine life to get them confused with jellyfish :'( Yet this spot is still one of my favourites around as the ground below the water changes all the time with the tides and currents and no two days are ever the same for the view =)
