Details:  Just when i thought diving couldn’t get any better, i hit the outer ledges on slack water. It was liking diving in an aquarium, with immaculate vis, and fish life everywhere. The sun was low in th sky and the ambient light underwater was ethereal. Unforunately i ran out of strobe batteries and memory from the previous dive, so not much to show..but it was just great to sit back and take in the views. At the end of the dive, a bottom dwelling fish (maybe a flounder or sole) swam past me in midwater…very strange to see..almost like a minature ray.
