Back in the big blue world

It was really great to get back underwater after several months without diving. I dived with some friends on a spot in Trou-aux-Biches (North-West coast of Mauritius) which shelters a rich marine life. To really enjoy the dive, it was better to have an adventurous mind rather than being only a simple spectator: rummage about in the cavities of the rock to unravel the den of a moray eel, look through the branches of the corals to catch a glimpse of hawkfish, scrutinize attentively the reef to discover the mimicry of frogfish and scorpionfish, observe the blue water to catch sight of a myriad of damselfish...
