We went down to Rye on the off chance of a dive today. The weather forecast hadn't been good, but the winds were not anywhere near as strong as they were supposed to be, and the showers disappeared, leaving an ovdrcast sky with the sun trying to break through from time to time,

The entry platform on the pier was closed, so we had to do a short entry - a long walk through shallow water just after low tide. We found several Seahorses hiding in the growth on the pylons, and a small Cowfish out in the rubble at the end of the pier. There were quite a few Squid off to the side of the pier again.
