Beach and Reef Clean up

Big Blue Conservation will be holdingcleanup this month’s Beach and Reef clean up on Saturday at 10 am. If you want to come and join in with the fun and get the ultimate good feeling then we will be meeting at Big Blue one, where we will clean North Sairee beach. Then we will jump into the water in the afternoon for the Reef clean which is completely FREE for all certified divers.

We had some very happy divers the other morning when they spotted a baby 3 metre Whaleshark at Chumphon Pinnacle. They are usually not around this time of the year but who knows what goes through the brain of a whalesharks when it’s out swimming along. Open Water divers who were on the boat were lucky enough to see it, 3rd dive ever and they see a Whaleshark, not bad going, especially as we have instructors here with thousands of dives who have still never seen one or it took years of diving before they finally had their Whaleshark cherry popped.

Today is Thanksgiving for those American friends of ours. They will be tucking into turkey with all the trimmings and pumpkin pies. Interesting fact to know was that if Benjamin Franklin had his way, the turkey would be American national bird. An eagle, he wrote in a letter to his daughter, had "bad moral character." A turkey, on the other hand, was a "much more respectable bird." The thought of any country having a turkey as its national bird is quite amusing. Gobble gobble gobble!!
