After our dive at Magic Point we had a cuppa after
anchoring at Anchor reef. The viz looked bad, and the wind was
howling making conditions topside quite uncomfortable. We headed
down in green tinged water. Given the strong wind blowing we paid
additional attention to securing the anchor. Down to the sand line
and around past the anchor we head toward the end of the reef. A
weedy sea dragon take our interest. We pass a grill then come
around the end of the reef. On a small rock outcrop Wayne starts
madly pointing at something very small. On close inspection it is
a pygmy pipe horse. This is only the second one of these that I
have seen. It is very small and lucky that the viz is quite poor.
In poor viz we spend a lot more time on the macro. In good viz we
probably would not have seen it at all. We take turns getting pics.
As I set up for my next shot it jumps from one piece of plant to
another. If only I had been taking video. We spend quite a
bit of time here and eventually have to move on. So even when the
viz is poor you can fins something outstanding.
