This was a rather murky dive, just before low tide. We did see a few weedy Sea Dragons, including an egg-carrying male, and one that we saw hunting (and eating) mysid shrimp. A very large Smooth Ray took a lot of interest in us, circling a few times before heading off over the seagrass meadow.

There were lots of King George Whiting, and a few Dusky Morwong in the grasses to the side of the pier, a few Cowfish, and a couple of Short-Finned Pike at the end of the pier. The Pike were quite flighty, and kept right at the edge of visibility, and always swam away if we tried to get close.
