Day 3, Second day Redang Island

Today was pretty much a water day.

First snorkeling session of the day (0900) was to the marine park.
Less fish than the day before but some large leather jacket style
fish. Frankie even managed to get some. Shots of a large jelly fish.
I think they are called lions mane jelly fish.

The GoPo cameras are doing great.

The second trip (1530) was another open session this time anchored in
the channel of some rocky outcrops. The depth was much higher than the
others and the current was actually very strong. At one point Frankie
and I were separated for over 1/2 hour. Resulting in bit of a panic.

After the second trip we decided we would try some 'free' snorkeling
off the beach at the resort. The dive team told us there were some
baby sharks in closer recently... Not sure if that was a good or bad
thing. Off we went. I am glad to say I. SWAM. WITH. SHARKS.
S.H.A.R.K.S. first time ever. 30cm black tip reef sharks. We saw two
cruising around the coral. Got some pictures too

Well it's time to pack. Off to Bangkok tomorrow via KL. so another early start
