Rocky and I decided to make this a very relaxed dive following our blown deco stop. We were both feeling good and weren't too worried after our long ascent on the last dive so we stayed shallow and just floated around.

This was meant to be a shallow dive after our deep, wreck dive. It is a beautiful reef with lots of character. Lots of cool coral formations and sea life. Viz was great. I watched the small fish stirring in the sand for food. I started stirring my finger in the sand and noticed that a bunch of them came to see if I had stirred up anything good. I played with them for a few minutes while letting Rocky play with my camera. As we headed back to the boat, a nurse shark did a swim-by. We tried to follow him over the reef but couldn't find him on the other side. We hung out until we were the last ones then boarded the boat. Nice dive!
