Swimming with Snoopy

Snoopy has a statue, sculpted by nature herself, resting off the East Coast of the UAE.
We went snorkelling off the coast in Fujeirah the other week at the Sandy Beach Motel. Can you guess why the rocks just off the edge of the beach are called Snoopy Island?

Snoopy’s surrounded by some lovely coral and the resulting undersea life that congregates there. The rocks are covered with black crabs, which gives the sensation that the surface of the rocks are rippling when you surface from a swim.
The snorkelling wasn’t quite so good as it’s been in the past. Hopefully this hasn’t got anything to do with the construction work that’s now starting in earnest of the coast here, but I suspect it might be.
