Australia Day long weekend dive and BBQ Breccy

Wow was the parking bad for those that arrived after 7.30am!

Owen, Pete, Sam and Ben set off to tinker with kit, take pics and in Petes case to get back into the water after a wee while. Mission accomplished. A warm humid day soon had the dry suit divers cursing us in wetsuits though that changed when we got into the water. A gentle bimble up the inner side of the reef, vis ............ mmmm poor, weed gives way to rocks and eventually to sand. Not much life to be honest, about 3 wobblegongs, large number of rays, some nice angel fish, a very unplayful cuttle fish and a bunch of friendly groupers. 40mins to an hour in the water depending on your body temp!

All kit put away and a good old fashioned Australian BBQ breccy - bacon, sausage and egg rolls, brown and tommy sauce, lashings of coffee and banter across the hot plate with our fellow aussies.
