    This is where I spent my last month and a half, and will spend the next year and a half if fate allows it, coming to civilization every other weekend.

    Just hate living in the most beautiful area in the world :p

    BTW, all the pics taken with a CELLPHONE- SO DO NOT CRAP OR JUDGE QUALITY:

    My view in the mornings when I wake up:

    The road I drive to work everyday- well, at least the view next to the road:

    My playground at certain days of the week:

    :lol: :lol:

    Man oh man your memory is good :lol:
    Btw, cannot fix blurry pics- get a steady hand or drink some OB's before your dives :whistling:


    @Reef Maniac :lol: - If only I can get to know half of the id's on the stuff I see there daily, it would be awesome. One thing is for sure- it is undisturbed and amazingly beautiful- and very remote without people stripping the reefs and I would like to keep it that way.To be able to snorkel amongst coral colonies, Goldies, Kingies and zillions of other stuff is really something I do not take for granted- on our own backdoor- no need to go across the border to enjoy it

    @Seabass Sooooo difficult to live alone, without the wife and kids, with nothing to keep your mind busy :whistling: :p

    I also worked there for a month. There is great diving spots. Its really unspoiled and well protected. Manguzi and surroundings is incredible. Go to some of the remote places, black rock, themba elephant park. Also great fishing in the area. I must say you start to mis civilization after a while. Where do you work? There is limited opportunity there
