Airplanes and Pygmy Sea Horses

I just started reading a book about a sunken treasure onboard a shot down airplane, and today I got to visit an actual sunken plane at Umbrella Point. At about 20 meters there’s a wreck of a small plane that was put there a few years ago to create an artificial reef. You come down a slope and find it sitting on the edge of the drop-off, and even though you know it has been put there intentionally, it’s still a bit airy when you spot it looming in the distance.

We didn’t find any treasures today, but we did see a Juvenile Sweetlips, Pygmy Sea Horse and lots of sea turtles. One had even taken a liking to the plane and was resting on the sand just below the nose.
