|Met up with Mick at Mornington and kitted up. Lent Mick Benita's 12 litre cylinder. Once again made the mistake of putting on my BCD before setting the pressure on my dive computer.
Giant stride entry off of the wall. Proceeded out on the surface past Wild Thing and then descended. Mick had equalisation problems, so we spend a few minutes until he got it sorted. Then we went under the pier.
The usual suspects marine life wise. Didn't see the cuttlefish, but plenty of stingrays and sea horses.
We went over the top and out onto the outer wall. I notice my left side weight pocket had come loose. Mick fixed it for me.
We travelled slowly along the outer wall checking things out and collecting fishing sinkers, jigs etc.
Near the end of the pier we spotted some very large silver fish swimming about.
We made our way slowly back along the inner side of the pier, again collecting fishing gear along the way.
We surfaced near the Wild Thing floating berth, and came in on the surface. Mick went up a ladder and I exited up the all from the ledge as usual.
It was great to be back diving in Melbourne with more to see, and just taking it easy.
