Grasses and floaty bits in the water suggest rain activity and coupled with sun encourages algae, then there's windy conditions....

I tried to sit under Portsea pier on Sunday but was ping-pong'ed b/w pylons...it would have been very funny to observe simple harmonic motion of a diver.....still a great dive b/c I was in a meditative state to lower my breathing rate, and practiced valve shutdown (i.e just making sure I could reach them positively).

Last Sat, I was booked for Cathedral Reef that Jason (Dive Vic) indicated was changed b/c of the dredging ship. No idea if water conditions were directly linked to dredge activity...maybe it's just unsettled weather.

Despite the weather, Hev and I did the North Wall (instead of Cathedral Reef) and it was awesome incl. a little cave swim through, large blue devils, and a school of delicately pink fish...
