We had the best dives since January last weekend. Today we endured wind early in the morning and rough seas just so we could dive in surge and sand scatter. Halfway Reef wasn't even halfway as nice as last weekend. Golf Ball Reef was even worse. We made the most of it but my haul of images today pales in comparison to last time.

The water had also cooled a bit. We had 49 on the first dive and 50 at GBR.

I found two Hermissenda opalescens duking it out while laying eggs.
