Earlier in the evening Dive in Wine Tanks did a reconnaissance of the piers: Portsea had big swells, Sorrento current was running fierce but it was decided to later try Rye which was just right ;-)

Dive in Wine Tanks, Hev and I did a shore entry/dive next to Rye pier in shallow water to avoid the long cold walk back along the pier and a fresh south wind.

Underwater was a google-zillion (new word!) bait fish - they conspired to anxiously zig-zag back and forth to confuse the divers as we swam through the mass - flashes of silver caught the light and it was thrilling to be surrounded by so much life.

The fish (fishes if you like...) ricochet off faces, body and in Hev's fine hair: wriggling desperately when caught to free themselves and giving poor Hev the creeps...after all when was the last time anything 'wriggled' in your hair ?!!

Plus a dead fish in long hair is considered a bit daggy these days....

There were sand octopi, small crabs desperately clamping for fish, a few rays, some seahorses - amazing life for ~2 metres of water.

Another enjoyable dive ;-)
