Headed down to Mornington Pier after work. Met another diver there who was going to be diving with a group organised by David Bryant.

Steve Lamb, Alan Storen and Alex showed up and we started to kit up. Then Greg Richards and two new VSAGers showed up as well. Alex and the two new guys decided to take there time so that it would be a night dive for them. Steve, Alan and I headed in with Greg joining us soon after.

We headed out on the surface past the Sydney to Hobart yacht Skandia and its tender, then over to the pier and descended. As we headed along the rock wall I spotted one medium and one small stingray. Then we were under the pier and seeing the usual inhabitants.

We pottered around slowly making our way out to the end of the pier and back. I didn't see any seahorses which was unusual for a dive at Mornington Pier.

My buoyancy control was noticibly a bit off as we began the dive, but by the end of the dive things had settled down.

Alan was diving with what was left in his cylinder after a dive earlier in the day so he depaterted after a while.

I noticed a stream of small bubbles coming from my Princeton Tec Shockwave LED dive torch when it was in certain positions, switched it off and turned on the OMS VEGA.

I was really enjoying just being relaxed on a long dive again. Eventually Steve signalled that he was down to 50 bar, so he headed to the surface, whilst I headed in underwater. I proceeded under Skandia and into the inlet. The keel of that yacht doesn't clear the bottom by much.

Alan and Greg helped me get my gear up the wall. Alan also flushed the flooded torch with fresh water.

After getting out of our kit, a group of us headed off to La Porchetta's for some food, drinks and yarns. A most enjoyable way to spend an evening.
