Today's agenda was to hit the Matevulu Blue Hole (MBH) as part of the Oyster Island experience. Jumping on a double kayak we paddled across the inlet and into the waterway that led to the MBH. Crystal clear water and intertidal zone with super vegetation provided plenty of visual entertinment whilst we powered through the water.
The Matevulu is the largest of the blue holes and the clever things nature is doing underwater there is fascinating. But lets stay on top of the water for now...
Yep, its blue. Thank goodness I was wearing a matching rashie.
Underneath the water, the algae grows in a variety of formats but the version that grows in a mode that resembles a fishing net is really clever.
Yep, the sun sent beaut shafts of light through the clear water. The algal nets were vertical and horizontal capturing leaves and perhaps other microbial matter that suited the plant.
After a very pleasant kayak back to the Oyster Island Resort, a swim and the Mother's Day Buffet was the go. We skipped dessert and headed out for a bit o' snorkelling at one of the many reefs that surround Oyster Island.
