Cabbage patch
 The 12th and last dive for us at Cocos.  and Dieter had kept the best 'shallow' site for last.  Cabbage Patch is located between Horsburgh and West Islands and boasts a very solid permanent mooring.  This site is covered in cabbage corals, stacked on top of each other.  We dived close to the drop off  at about 12 m, seeing plenty of reef sharks.  We crossed 2 sand gullies that cut through the cabbage coral.  These sandy patches were home to lots of very long garden eels.  We were also blessed with another manta, which came very close to the divers at the front.  I was behind the rest of the divers and too far away to get a good picture of the manta.  There were thousands of yellow/blue fusiliers at this site.  We headed up the second sandy gully and back towards the boat.  We did enjoy a long sandy swim through with great overhangs.  Max depth for me was only 15m but I enjoyed 70 minutes at this wonderful site.
