Throughout the week, it wasn't that good with the rain and surf. But conditions changed over night. There was no surf and the water was crystal clear. The only
way to know this was to see it for yourself.

When I arrived at the mall, it was only Rich and myself for 10 minutes. People started showing up at 7:30. I decided that we should dive at Divers Cove because
we haven't dove there in years. We have been diving at Heisler but ignoring Diver's Cove which is 400 yards away.

We arrived and parked close to the steps. We suited up and entered the water without any issues. At the drop down point there was a large bat ray sitting down
at the bottom. We dropped down and took video of it. Then we proceeded to swim at 240 degrees to hit the reef.

We reached the reef and swam along the reef. After a few circles and passes, I decided to head out for deeper water and find another reef. The 200 yard dash
swim didn't turn up any reefs, so I headed east. Then north to head back to shore. There we hit another reef.

I did a quick surface interval to see where we were and saw we had to go east some more. We rounded the reef that juts out and we headed into shore. Rich
was on shore patrol and saw dolphins and seals which we didn't see on our dive.

We packed up and headed over to Husky Boy's to compare notes. The visibility must have been up to 30 feet. This was a day to do two dives if we were
prepared to do so. There aren't many dives like that.
