The Easter long weekend on April 3, 2010 and Wayne is on holidays on the Gold Coast.  Jenny and I eventually get organised and head down to Bushrangers Bay.  It rains on the way and the sky looks grim but we keep going.  There is a significant amount of white water around the gravel loader, The Gutter was surging and our last hope was Bushrangers Bay which would be sheltered from the big seas.  When we parked there were divers everywhere - a club had decided to make this their outing.  Lucky for us they were packing up so we had it to ourselves. 

It took us ages to get organised and finally we got down and into the water.  I had been to Plunge Diving and bought a new mask from my good mate Peter.  Today I was trying out my new Atomic ARC mask and it is fantastic.  This is an expensive mask but it is worth it.  The clarity of vision is amazing.  Jenny also tried it - we did a mask swap under water - and she also found it fantastic.  It did fog up - not enough cleaning before first use I think. 

We had headed out but at around 6m and about at the first set of rocks that close in on the bay we could feel the tide pulling us out.  It did take some solid finning to get back into calmer waters.  We basically covered the area in the shallows, where the water clarity was better.  We found a lovely Eagle ray and got some pics of it, some stingarees, wrasse and stripeys. The weather was closing in and as we exited it started to drizzle.
