[LogBook] Diving in the Pond of Thau – France
Ahoy Sailors & Mermaids! This post is very special to me, as it is my first dive in a pond! And more exactly the pond of Thau, well known by French divers for it’s adorable inhabitants… Around it, on land, you will for sure meet nice fishermen, happy to talk about their recent catch, or about the oysters and mussels harvest. Ready? Let’s dive!
#Ponton de la Bordelaise, Pond of Thau, Gulf of Lion, Mediterranean Sea
Water Temperature: 17°
Sightings: Cuttlefish, Long-Snouted Seahorse, Mottled Doris, Orange Flat Worm…
Notes: There is definitely a lot to see if you have a really good sight! Cuttlefishes are the cutest, especially when they are trying to hide themselves in the sand… Even if the king here remains the Long-Snouted Seahorse, as the pond of Thau has the largest colony in France! Today unfortunately I got to see only one, but like I use to say: Next time will be the good one!
The best season to observe the Seahorses is apparently late spring, which is also the perfect moment to enjoy the Festival of Martime Traditions in Sète, and have a walk in the colourful city center!
This is the end of this logbook at the Pond of Thau! If you liked it please feel free to let me know in a comment! Sea you soon for more bubbles!
