|Weight now a ludicrous 30 lb, and I still had a tiny problem
getting down! But once at about 5m everything was just dandy.
A gigantic (meters across!) brain coral, barracuda, a moray, a lionfish
and all the usual on all sides and in profusion, much better than Eilat
(but still far from unspoiled).
My air consumption was pretty high, and the DM was aware of this: when I reached 30, she stuck her octo in my mouth and kept on going slowly. At the very end of the ascent I started having weight problems again, but everything was OK, even though I surfaced with less than 10 bar left...!
