Last week was the worst conditions I've seen in a long time. I was hoping a week of calm water would clear things up a bit. It was better than last week, but still dark and dirty.

We tried to dive at Merry's Reef but called the dive after five minutes. We couldn't find the wall, even though I knew we were within twenty feet of it. We finished off our tanks at Golf Ball Reef where the visibility was a cloudy twelve feet with a moderate current. Many of the animals were hiding during the poor visibility but a few allowed us to take their pictures.

Poor conditions really depress me. I guess sometimes you just need to give yourself a hug.
