Got to the beach about 8:45 am and read a little before gearing up at 9:00 am and getting in. I dropped once I got everything set and swam out to the reef on the bottom. I was hoping to find that manta shrimp looking creature again, but did not. Instead, I found the whole reef covered in light green algae. I don't remember it being like that when I last dove the Ledge. It took some time to find the Rock Pile, but I did. I went up on the reef at 120 degrees, trying to adjust for the current.
Not far from the Rock Pile, I found a Spotted Burrfish and spent some time photographing it.
I continued up the reef and spotted Turtle Rock through the haze. I swam right to the Ledge from there. Took lots of pictures on the Ledge,
these two Porkfish,
a Striped Parrotfish,
I found these Black Margate,
several Midnight Parrotfish,
I headed back to the Ledge, via Nipple Rock and then 300 degrees down the reef to the Rock Pile,where I spotted and photographed this Green Sea Turtle.
It was a long dive at 2 hours 15 minutes, and I was shivering when I got out. I was cautious since I had fallen last time I was here, but I did fine this time.
