All the Pretty Seahorses
We like animals, and we also like running pictures of animals, as you, gentle reader, may have noticed. So we started an animal feature, which, for lack of editorial imagination we called Animal Planet. We also considered calling it Commander Snuggles Cuddly Fuzzy Happy Time Hour. Then our sister at HotelChatter said we might get sued, so it's now called Stupid Pet Trips.
Think we only recommend trips for cuddly animals? Think again. This week, it's all about marine life. And responsibility.
In his book Dive in Style, (no, he's not talking about Double Down East, the Vegas-based chain of dive bars) diver/photographer Tim Simond serves up a coffee table brick featuring the best digs to escape that fishy scent, post-dive.
There's plenty of usual suspects, since resorts do tend to grow like, let's say coral, around dive sites. But he does recommend the super-luxe Amanwana, on Moyo Island in Indonesia, to see pygmy seahorses.
Seahorses are the only species where the males get pregnant, remember. So when you're staying in Amanwana's luxury tents (which have AC, windows, and hardwood floors), try not to get too frisky, gents. Who knows what might happen?
