Free fish and ray feeding each day here at @daydreamislandresort#turnbacktime#tbt
SLIDE LEFT to go back to 2012, our last visit. ➡️➡️➡️➡️ 🤰Harry was still in the tummy, 👶Alex was nearly 2 and 🧒 Jed was 4.
We've checked out the reef exploration centre, wandered around the multiple ponds. Watched shovel nosed sharks and other rays cruise by outside our window and even from down below the waterline. The kids have (again) loved every minute getting up close.
Rough morning on the water this morning... 3 hours and only one bite... Didn’t even get to net him. So you know what that means? Photo Dump! Be sure to flip thru all 5. This morning was pretty magical.
Fully customised interior and exterior ponds and water features are something we’re really good at!
Keeping in mind functionality, ease of maintenance and only the highest in aesthetic design we can sculpt a living water feature in any room, terrace, balcony or garden.
Did you know that koi fish was originally only in black?
Ojiya city is said to be the birthplace of these splendid Nishikigoi ( #錦鯉 ) that we see today, when the Echigo (now Niigata) people discovered that colorful koi were born due to natural color mutation.
The koi at Nishikigoi no Sato ( #錦鯉の里 ) are indeed fabulous, some even magnificent. The oldest koi here is 34 years old, and you can buy a treat for ¥100 and hand-feed these fishies! Interestingly, koi doesn’t have teeth so having them nibbling on the pellets from your palm is akin to that of... getting nommed by a teething infant lol. It’s quite fun actually. 😆
Also, you can actually pick a koi here and be its owner! Pay a fee and your koi will be looked after for one year. After that you can bring it home with you or have it stay at the pond here free of charge so you can come back and visit your pet fish anytime.
