" The sea glitters in many colours and the seaweed slowly sinks towards the seabed. Between the, azure-blue fruit is floating around and, for a moment a beautiful mermaid appears, dancing gracefully around the plants"
" At last, night falls on Tahiti. The water of the sea turns a deep dark blue. A black seaweed shape, strange and beautiful, appears for a moment, only to sink slowly down into the endless depths."
