A wonderful video from someone with a wonderful outlook and appreciation of life.

Dear Critters,

Please scroll down for an amazing video of our octopus encounter yesterday at Flinders Pier (taken by my awesome dive buddy, Mark ‘LP’ Jones – and check out more of his sensational underwater videography at http://www.oceanandtheearth.wordpress.com).

One of the highlights of any dive holiday is making new friends. After meeting South African Londoner Andrew Schulze on last week’s Great Barrier Reef Trip, LP and I were more than happy to introduce him to the awesome critters of Flinders Pier during his visit to Melbourne yesterday.

Shortly after entering the water, I squealed with delight to recognise two familiar but well-camoflauged eyes peering straight at me from one of the pylons not far from shore. Somehow I managed to yell loud enough underwater to call LP and Andrew back to the extraordinary creature they had unknowingly just swum past.

About Kathy

I am semi retired and had lots of free time on my hands. I still work part time as a bookkeeper at the little hardware store in our small town but I still had free time to fill so I became a blogger here at The Harley Factor. I also am a compulsive beader so I started a beading blog to show off my bead work call Compulsive Beading. As I have gotten older and mostly wiser I have become very opinionated on a lot of subjects and will share them with you from time to time when I can't keep my mouth shut. Kathy Sinclair
