長崎ダイビング

A Weekend Underwater

IMG_1269.jpg

Hey everyone, did you all have a great weekend? We had a great couple of days diving in Nagasaki. The sun was shining and the temperature was hot so it was a most welcome break to cool off underwater. Tomorrow is the full moon which means that the tidal exchange will be large or “ Oshio, 大潮”. To coincide with this the Bigfin reef squid or “アオリイカ” have been making and laying eggs like crazy and we got an up close and personal look at the action.

The squid weren`t the only ones making babies, the clownfish or クマノミ also had kids in the nursery and ready to be hatched. The shiny speckles are the eyes of the little ones. Unlike the squid the Clownfish are very protective when they have egg around so when we got close one parent protected the eggs while the other put on his guard dog face to ward off intruders.

It`s a great time of year to go diving with a host of other colourful critters dotting the underwater landscape. Just an awesome couple of days and I can`t wait to go diving again, it` s a great break from the summer heat, just what a “made in Canada” guy needs!!

Until next time…

福智山ツアー

Fukuchiyama Tour

IMG_1216.jpg

Hey there, did you all have a great long weekend? We had a blast with diving on Sunday and a great hiking trip on Monday. Our original plan was to hike up Mt. Karakuni in Miyazaki but Murphy`s Law kicked in making that area the only area on Kyushu with cloudy weather and rain. So with the weather forecast in hand I decided to change our destination to Mt. Fukuchi in the Kitakyushu area.

We headed up the mountain taking the Nana e no Taki route which takes us along a refreshing mountain stream and past 7 waterfalls hence the name “ Nana e no Taki”, 7 waterfalls. Mana had a great time splashing around and soaking us all.

After the waterfalls and a quick hump up to the ridgeline we worked our way to the mountain hut just below the summit where we stopped for lunch. Today`s menu, Goto Udon, Yum Yum!!

Once we finished lunch and refilled our water bottles we hiked up the last few hundred metres to the 360o view from the summit.

We worked our way back down following the Kyushu Nature trail to the truck where it was off to the local MOS Burger for a yummy snack and a shake! A great finish to a great day!

Until next time, happy trails!
