Blissful days at the Straits of Lembeh…

Spent some time at North Sulawesi…
Specifically, Lembeh followed by Bunaken…
Lembeh is the so-called ‘muck diving capital of the world’, and Bunaken, the center-piece of the Bunaken National Marine Park with its highly acclaimed walls…
Thoroughly blissful, it was…

Imagine, the many wonderful marine creatures living right underneath these waters…
