On the spur of the moment we decided to stop at Sunset House as it was nearly a year to the day since we had last been there. Just as well we did I suppose as the light and the conditions were just right. With a 7 knot Easterly wind, 28c in the water and a mild Northerly current, what more could you ask for.

|This big old boy was our constant companion through the dive.........|
|He loved the attention!|
With our bottom time slowly ticking away, we played pied piper to the snappers as we led them onto the main wall to have some more fun in the deep amongst the rope and barrel sponges.
|A barrel (sponge) of fish?|
|Right place, right time, right lighting and a whole heap of luck to get a nice shot.|
After a quick swap of the lenses and a brief S.I., we were back in the water for round two and on the hunt for the small stuff. The site has always been good for gobies and blennies and today was no exception with the little fellas running wild all over the place.
Not to mention a nice spotted drum which Jill found hiding under a rock. Sadly though I failed to find any nudi's on this outing. My powers of observation have temporarily deserted me this weekend.
But I did see a nice little juvenile slender filefish so I wasn't sompletely blind!
It was a great morning out, not only for the marine life but for us as well. Hopefully next Sunday will be just as nice if you care to join us by throwing yourself off a perfectly good boat over on the East side of the island. Till then, dive safe.
