Day 10: Back to Lembeh

It was decided to go back to Lembeh because the weather is not very inspiring on the North and we got another long/boring/noisy night ride to Batu Pendeta and go back in the afternoon to Lembeh Straits. My Ikelite strobe decides it has enough after the 2nd dive and stop working in the middle of the dive. Simply awesome.

David kindly offers me to use his Ikelite strobe, it was serviced by Ikelite 2 days before the liveaboard but as it is, it has never fully worked. Previously the controller was ineffective and now after 'repair', the strobe sometimes decides to stop working and does not fire. It is still better than not working at all though.
