Fight club

Everything was a fight.
The drive down in the pouring rain.
Gearing up in the rain.
The surge and ebb tide creating a lot of movement in the water.
Just not being able to get comfortable in the water - not for the drills nor for the ascent.
Waiting around in the drysuit for almost an hour after the dive for a brief let-up in the pouring rain to de-kit and avoid being completely soaked.

The redeeming factors for the day were seeing an octopus in the sand (I've never seen one during the day) and a large spotted turbot.
-> 41min, 34ft, 51F
Post dive at Hula's while we waited for sea_otter's tanks to be refilled.
