Storms Doris then Ewan, one after the other – still laying low!

That wasn’t Storm Doris at the beginning of February; she flew through last Thursday with Storm Ewan following hot on  her heels yesterday (Sunday). So I’m still laying low and keeping safe hiding in my crevice home until the calmer conditions return. Paul and Teresa have discovered that us ‘superDad” tompot blennies often live in and guard the same crevice on the reef for at least 3 years.

I have survived and stayed in my home through many tough times. Paul’s study showed that we could even weather the terrible storms in the winter of 2013/14.

Have you been to a beach just after a storm? You often see lots of cuttlefish bones washed up, of all different sizes. Cuttlefish aren’t as good as me at finding a safe place to shelter from the swirling sea.
