Join me for a few minutes under the Mediterranean Sea back in August 2022!
I had less than a month left to be in the sea before autumn fall set in. Towards the autumn fall Equinox it gets too cold for me to be in the sea unless midday and can dry off in the sun for a few minutes. Later on in the day I freeze as the wind picks up. My fingers turn yellow and loose all sensation. So I was in the sea as much as poss saying hi to my friends. I hope you like them too!
As the change of temperature rolled in, the sea also changed being more choppy which meant lower vis.
It’s way too early yet to snorkel, however at the time of posting (3rd March) winter’s finally eased its grip. Fingers crossed the end of May I can say Hi to my fish friends!
I like the individual shots as the fish come up to say hi. My goal this year is to be more organised getting the beach to spend more than 10 minutes snorkelling to get less rushed shots. A girl can dream 🙊
I’m still not sure which wrasse this is. I think it’s a female Symphodus ocellatus, by the spot on it’s tail.
I’m excited to share an amazing snorkel location along the Costa Brava in the next few weeks. I’ve been chronologically posting Under The Med Sea series due to some fish only visiting the on and near shores periodically, to spawn so the babies have a better chance of survival in shallower waters. In turn, predators know where the nurseries are so visit for easier hunting or to do both like pompanos/Trachinotus ovatuses.
Thank you for stopping by!
Thank you for sharing, Natalie. I have never snorkeled before. It would be amazing seeing the fish underwater. And even have some come up to you. The fried egg jellyfish looks so fascinating. 😀
Snorkelling is easy! You have to be in constant check with your surroundings as it’s easy to get further out than you think, but it’s relatively easy. It’s so cool to see another world too!
Fried egg jellyfish are so colourful and thankfully not stingy. I still stay well away from them though 😂
Maybe this summer you could get to the Canadian coast or even a lake to snorkel! I found this https://traveltriangle.com/blog/snorkelling-in-canada/ with the best places in Canada to snorkel!
I hope you’re all okay and thank you for stopping by 😃
