    Beautiful! Great little guy! I’d love to visit Christmas Island too!

  • It was lovely! If you like nature, snorkelling, diving, 4wd, & hiking to remote spots, it’s just the place for you. Wonderful coral (unfortunately my underwater camera broke, so no photos :( ) Whale Sharks……. need I say more :D

    What a really cool photo, viewed large it looks like he is missing an eye. I love the red against the rock, BEAUTIFUL

  • Thankyou Karen!
    Yes, I think she’s missing an eye too. I didn’t notice until I uploaded the photo. A lot of Red crabs get injured (& killed) by cars, they also get attacked by fish & eels when they enter the sea to spawn. This was taken just after spawning & there were many hungry eels about, so I suspect she’d had a battle, poor girl.
