Back to the Reserve

Today was Roger's birthday lunch in Carry-le-Rouet. Afterwards, we were to spent some time in the nearby marine reserve. Unfortunately, the waves of the previous day had disturbed the bay's warm top-layer, and water temperature had fallen to the lower 20s. Since none of us had any suit, this made for some FRESH snorkeling. Again, the water was full of fresh. Yet, we saw significantly fewer than two days before. First, the schools of Saupes were smaller. Second, the shallow area to the left, where we had seen Loups hiding in large groups of fish, were totally empty. Tons of fish had spent their Friday essentially sunbathing, but now had returned to other areas. Still, another incredible afternoon.

Saupes.

Poor Thiery lacked fins.
