Sunshine Rocks !!!
It was a beautiful day in the neighbourhood, Sun streaming down, wind from the North and the water at Portsmouth flat calm. Perfect diving conditions, if you set aside an air temperature of -8C (18F), things couldn't have been any better. The viz in the water was probably better than 40 feet and the sunshine highlighted the wrecks near the entry point. Only a few Gobies seem to be active just now, although the silhouette of a Pike was spotted near the Anchors. Despite careful scrutiny, no Crayfish were found lurking near the pipe or amongst the rocks. For the record, the water temperature was 34F (1C) and the inner harbour - frozen yesterday - was free of ice today. Go figure!
