Diver's Notes

Second dive today and much the same conditions as the earlier dive, bit of a swell & surge. Lovely blue sky for this dive which helped with the visability somewhat. Still murky though at 2-3m vis.

Spotted a harbour seal lurking in the shadows behind us as we made our way back to shore. Couldn't capture him on the camera with the bad vis. Fab second dive.
