Oman: beware of frothy facemasks

Duncan woke up just after midday and consumed a healthy fruit salad for breakfast. With his new flippers (ooh sorry, fins), mask (suitably toothepasted) and snorkel, they headed out from the Dive Centre with a German chappie and an Italian named ‘Baison’. Mrs M did her usual bossy lady bit by ordering the guide to take them away from the usual boring location where they dump tourists.

They plopped into the warm waters for that Jacques Cousteau experience with perfect clear visibility accentuating the coral and not-seen-before fish. Under water, Duncan scared the doo-doo out of one of his crew mates before swimming into a jelly fish and meeting three majestic turtles out for an afternoon flap.
