Diver's Notes

Name of the site comes from natural round formation all the way from surface to sandy bottom at ten meters, that looks partly like an amphitheatre. It was nice to look from bottom up to the sarface where the waves where hitting on the rocks on the.

Windy and a bit cloudy. Little of dwelling on surface, in deeper water almost still.
