Under the Sea at Kanawa Island

On 20, Oct 2014 | No Comments | In Indonesia, Travel | By kanannie

When we weren’t dealing with cockroaches and bed bugs we explored the underwater world around Kanawa Island. I don’t want to brag, but I’m like a professional snorkeler now. Is there a snorkeling competition for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics? I should start training because I could easily win gold.

Are you jealous? You should be.

These look like Chinese finger traps. And, yes, I did stick my finger in each of these things.

Did you know that lionfish are considered invasive species? That’s too bad cuz they’re so purdy.

Butterfly fish are exciting to see when you first start snorkeling. Now we’re just like, “Meh, butterfly fish.”

Pretty purple coral that will kill you.

Pretty green coral that will also kill you.

One of the best things we saw in the water. This cuttlefish almost made me feel bad about eating cuttlefish. Almost.

Cuttlefish are actually mollusks, not fish. I just taught you something new.

The chameleon of the sea has changed its color to hide itself from predators like me.

This looks like a bung hole. I’m just saying what you’re thinking.

One my favorite sea creatures. I can’t get enough of these clownfish.

Clownfish coming in for a kiss.

More pretty purple corals.

Sea urchin hiding between dead corals. I wonder if these taste good because they look good.

10.18.2014_kanawa-161

I call these pine cone coral.

10.18.2014_kanawa-179

Bumpy starfish. They’s nasty lookin’.

10.18.2014_kanawa-187

This snail is like the Crazy Eyes of the sea. It sticks it’s crazy eye out and when you least expect it, it swipes at you with its long, pointy sword thingy.

A cute pufferfish minding its own business and looking all cute doing it.

10.19.2014_kanawa-98

This sea turtle was munching on some dead coral when it spotted us and jetted off. I’ve never seen a turtle move so fast.

10.19.2014_kanawa-105

Japanese people eat turtles. That’s probably why it swam off so quickly.

10.19.2014_kanawa-106

This is a cool picture that my talented boo took of the fleeing turtle.

10.19.2014_kanawa-236

Another cute pufferfish.

10.19.2014_kanawa-243

A blue-spotted sting ray.

Parrotfish are everywhere, but this one’s more interesting looking than most.

If two pictures of clownfish aren’t enough for you, check our album for two dozen more.
