North wind was strong today with some thick clouds in the sky.

We are back to winter condition 🙂

In order to avoid the wind and chops from the north wind, we cruised down to the southeast side of Ishigaki.

 

Southeast coast of Ishigaki is famous for dynamic seascape.

 

Also there are lots of soft corals, and the scenery is very different from other parts of Ishigaki.

 

Miyara Anemonefish Town.

You can meet variety of Anemonefish here.

 

Slowly….

 

Tangaroa shrimp goby.

Beautiful orange and blue pattern 🙂

 

Hairy stingfish was trying to camouflage…

 

It is still early for the season, but there was a baby Giant cuttlefish floating around the reef.

 

Juvenile Harlequin sweetlips!

This one was restless, and couldn’t take a clean shot…

 

The wind is forecasted to calm down a bit tomorrow.

Let’s see if we can go down south to Taketomi or Kuroshima!
