Barrens Hut has been disappointing the last few times we had been there.
This time was no exception. The seas were big but far apart and
with a southerly run we felt that Barrens Hut would be OK. We were
wrong. At the bottom the sand was being stirred up and viz was
only a few metres. We headed from our anchor along the sand line
to our favourite hollow in the reef. Wayne went in and I was about
to follow. Then the current came, pushing Wayne back towards me
and into the rocks, while I held on to the rocks to avoid being swept
out. I don't ever recall being in such strong current. This
spooked us a bit and we headed back toward the anchor. A lone PJ took
our attention for a few minutes before we headed back up.
