Yesterday was my final day’s diving and we went to The Aquarium again. Once again we enjoyed large shoals of fish at the corner known as The Aquarium.
We dropped off at the House reef for my last dive of the trip. At the exit rope we found hundreds of Moorish Idols and Sergeant Majors.

At 3pm I enjoyed a ninety minute oil massage at the Anggerik Spa and floated out as usual. Late afternoon found me hunting for the Blue butterflies again. This is the best time of day as they are not so skittish as early morning and midday. Once again I saw three butterflies in one sighting compared with one in the early morning when the sun was on the patch of grass.
Final sundowners at the sunset bar were most enjoyable. I finally met Barbara and Suzy, our non-diving members of the group. Adel and Abdulla left for Saudi in the evening, and Bill leaves tonight for Perth. These three guys join me in the Maldives every year. We just need Andy to join us again next year to make up our regular group.
