Preparations pre-typhoon included cutting down the coconuts

The diving platform was all prepared for the worst

As most of you know the Philippines just had typhoon Hagupit or Ruby as it is called in here come through. Up until the last moment it looked like it would be coming through Puerto Galera. The good news is that …it didn’t!! Yes, we had lots of rain and wind, but it could have been much worse. We had completely battened down the hatches but luckily for us, it passed quickly and quietly in the whole scheme of things. In-fact, by mid afternoon the day after the typhoon we are already diving and the conditions are back to our normal lovely now.  We know that not everyone in the Philippines got off lightly though and do feel for them.
