Diver's Notes

Buddied w/ Beth, dived with XO Rory West & a big group - 2x Spanish couples from before. Led by Rodolfo. Anchored in 4m out of the wind. Lots of rocks & crevices for things to hide in! Lots of comber, cardinal fish, picarel, saddled bream, 2-banded bream, wrasse various, another yellow triplefin, some kind of goby, octopus, moray eels, small tripefin, tons of damselfish, multi-coloured nudibranch... Suit leaked down my neck - v wet front! Didn't enjoy other divers getting in my way / kicking me! XO very hungover today, hahaha!
