King Crab developing eggs

King crab developing clutch of eggs, I watched the national geographic channel. Fisherman in Alaska it's amazing they catched hundreds or I must say thousands of king crabs they catched everyday. I like king crab legs it's tasty and meaty, it's a little pricey buying king crab legs. I tried the fake crab meat taste funny. I like cook it in filipino style, it so delicious!.

Snorkeling time

Snorkeling is fun even if you don't know how to swim, but still you can enjoy snorkeling. I'm not a good swimmer but I know how to snorkel. You need to be able to feel good and comfortable in the water in order to be in control of yourself and your body. Before snorkeling you should also practice wearing the equipment while floating in the water. This will allow you to become familiar with it and its weight. I remembered my husband taught me how to snorkel, I insist I can't do it because I can't swim. He said I can just have to float, wether facing down or up. So i did float and practice how to breath with the mask. I was surprised that I did float on the water and enjoying snorkeling. It is highly recommendable that you practice wearing all your snorkeling equipment while being into the water before you actually practice snorkling.

The first impression upon stepping aboard is one of space. I'm excited when the boat is done and ready for sailing. The sailboat is done painting an oyster color, it's ready to put on the water to test for the balance. Hubby have to figure it out how to put on the water. Probably it will be ready next week, I'll keep you posted.

Giant Clams in Camiguin

Way back in Philippines that's when I started snorkeling in Camiguin Cantaan White beach. Where you can find Giant Clams, it's only 22 km from Mambajao. We rented a motorbike to tour half of the Island and went to the said beach. Wow very Peaceful place and prestine, payment for entrance foreigners have different entrance fee. Before we start our activity we headed first at the breeding center and the education facility with an exhibition. And rented snorkeling ang goggles. From the beach you see the marked sanctuary which is actually the nursery.

It was fun experienced to observed the movements of the clamps which is bit scary. It was my second time snorkeling there, I'm sure if you try it you will be pleased of what you will see. It's worth going there even if it's bumpy road going to Cantaan, but once when you arrive there it's paradise!. I enjoyed it a lot, I'm planning to go back there again next year.
