The Crowning Glory

Culion-Bugor Reef-Crowning Glory“We actually didn’t want to bring you here first.”

One of the boatmen has just jumped into the sparkling waters, a thick, blue cord in hand. Why not? I ask. “Because every other coral reef will seem ugly afterwards,” Guido shrugs. He points to the swimming boatman and explains we can’t drop anchor because the corals are shallow so he needs to tie our boat to a rock.

Once secure, we jump in…and what a sight! I’ve never seen this much color and life underwater.

“This is Bugor Reef,” Guido smiles, “But around here, we call it the Crowning Glory.”

This is part of a small series called The 100-Word Travel Stories. Why 100 words? 🙂
