LATEST NEWS, re the plans for a "man-made beach" at "Lung Mei", next to Tai Mei Tuk.
February 18 there was a hearing regarding the plans for the beach. Outcome still to be presented.
The Government and the beach's supporters are convinced they can just relocate the rare creatures that
live there. A type of sea horse, rare to HK, has been spotted there and we'd love to find it too and get it
It's been a while since there has been a real development. There are however more and more people visiting the area, especially at night.
The latter ones, I'm afraid, are there to catch crabs. As they thrash around many creatures will probably be disturbed/harassed to a point that they will disappear.
Tire structures at D-site found !!
A "not so caring captain" dragged them up with his anchor, despite warnings he dropped it right on top of it.
We've located them. Now to lift and move them :-(.
Dived them April 13. The 2 "structures" have lost their shape and might be to deep in the mud now to move w/o the help of a large boat.
There were quite a number of large snappers there on April 13, maybe it's better to leave there, away from the crowds.
DIVING in Philippines.
We got another dive resort with whom we can get good deals.
Easy Diving Sipalay.
They are based in Sipaly, Negros. More details later.
We can now offer good deals to those who want to dive in Phuket, Thailand,
