It was nearly midday and after our coffee with surface interval we were ready for the next dive . It was first time for me and other in our 3 person buddy team to dive this site ! We had no idea what to expect . I heard about the place , but have never seen any photos . Not even the ones from the ship while it was still afloat.
We started our descend. Anchor line seemed slack and I was sure that side should be only about 20 m deep , but after dropping to 15 and still no sight of anything except anchor line I realised I was very much wrong.
This is gonna be an adrenaline filled dive...
Found this little guy while shore diving at only 3 m depth . This was passing by right in front of Scorpion fish fro about 5 minutes and i was starting to wonder if Scorpion fish is gonna start to move . It did not !
Size - about 2,5 cm

It was indeed nearly 12 in midnight .
It was my last night in Brisbane , Australia in general .I wondered trough streets with Christmas lights and few people wondering around like me . I was making my way to Treasury Casino . On 26 December as all else was sadly closed and had nothing to do. This damn place somehow managed to become open right at these darn night hours after alcohol limitations in restaurants all around Brisbane.
As soon as you arrive in Kokopo , locals will ask you if you managed to visit this local hub. Local hub called Ralum Country Club . Also called a golf course or Ralum by GI ( Gazelle International Hotel). And for many it stays just that , but there is a lot more to it .
