Checking Terumbu Pempang Laut in a mizzle

This submerged reef is close to Jurong Island, spewing emissions on the horizon as usual. Yet is it home to corals and other interesting marine life.
We visited in a mizzle (miserable drizzle) and were glad to see our familiar favourites.

Punggol's living rocky shores

There is a pretty little stretch of rocky shore at Punggol Jetty, just opposite Pulau Ubin.
Alas, no seagrasses today. While the shore had colourful marine life, it was far less diverse than my last trips here over the years.
