Back to the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia for the fourth time. Still wonderful for the

world of the weird. The creatures seem to be getting smaller or maybe my eyesight is

getting worse. This gallery has the fearsome sounding Lembeh Sea Dragon which

actually looks like three inches of dental floss, with a head.  And the Gorgonian

Pygmy Seahorse, described as "exceedingly tiny" (correctly so). Both of these were

new to us. We stayed at the Kasawari Resort, managed by Nus Lobbu, a veteran of

Lembeh who we first met in 1998. It's a small boutique resort, wonderful staff and

amenities. Our dive guide was Ali who also goes back to the early days of Lembeh

diving when fabulous and unusual creatures started to show up in the US dive

magazines that had previously only written about their advertisers from the

Caribbean or Florida.
