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.
