You always remember your first....octopus
The Story: Imagine the warm waters of the south Pacific in Chuuk Lagoon Micronesia. There are tiny little coral heads growing on the exterior of the WW2 Japanese shipwreck - the Rio De Janeiro Maru. As I was hanging on my decompression stops after a fantastic scuba dive, I was treated to an octopus jumping from coral to coral. It changed colours from yellow, to blue green, and back again to yellow as it swam with its arms trailing behind it. I was mesmerized by how fluid and simultaneously awkward it looked as it flew through the water. It was the first time I had ever seen a wonderful magical alien octopus while on a dive.
The ocean is this beautiful, unexplored place. Why on Earth everyone isn't down there, I don't know.
