One last pier day

Beside the pier is a dolphin, an odd name for a thing for small cargo ships to tie up to. They tie the bow to the dolphin, and the stern to the roro ramp, roll on, roll off. The pilings are at an angle, teepee style, to give sterngth to the structure to hold the little ships steady while trucks and trailers are rolled off the ship onto land.
There is usually a small mixed school of Grunts and Snappers enjoying the shade, and protection of the pilings.

.My buddy Jan pointing at something. Do you see what?

.Here's a closer image.

.Aha! A little lobster, tho' my only photo isn't, umm, very good, but I thought you'd like to see the whole critter.

.A Sponge Wrestling Match between a Tube and a Rope. With onlookers staring and oooing. I don't know who is winning!

I'll wind up with a successful picture. This is a Mustard Hill coral loaded with Christmas Tree worms of many colors. Hum actually, probably two corals beside each other, looking at the different colors This is on some big scraps of cement blocks near the dolphin.
OK, hope you had as much fun as I did! Thanks for stopping by!
