We visited several new locations on Curaçao so far in 2021. Playa Piskadó was notable for a number of reasons. One the plus side, there were a couple of turtles that didn’t seem to mind a bunch of divers harshing their mellow. On the negative side, I saw a discarded sharking lying in the bay where fishing boats are anchored. It sucks to see things like that. We also visited Kokomo Beach where we saw a cero and tons of sun anemone. Then there was the hunting octopus at Marie Pampoen. Oh, and we seem to find cats (or they find us) which always make things a bit better.
