Finishing 2020 just like we began, SSAC was again diving at Bass Point and again we were beaten by the summer crowds and ending up diving the Gravel Loader. On the plus side at least there were no Bushfires to worry about even if the holiday traffic resulted in a classic 'rolling wave' dive formation with pairs going in as and when they arrived.
Pulling stumps and retreating to Rick & Soo place we planned an early arrival at Bushrangers Bay the following day. While the weather was more overcast, the bay was flat as a tack, which combined with a handy rock platform to sit to fin up, made for an easy entry and exit. While some missed the memo about the rock ledge between the inner and outer parts of the bay meaning it's better to follow a compass bearing than try following the rock wall to get back everyone enjoyed the Grey Nurse sharks which were unphased by group after group of divers passing by.
