A historic find – treasures abound

I know I always extol the virtues of the aquatic reserve and surprises that are constantly to be found at one of the most popular beaches in Sydney but the highlight today was finding an intact ceramic beer bottle dating back to the 1930’s. Just lying on the sand in shallow water where hundreds of people daily swim past it still has the original cork in the top, though I’m sure the “use by” date has long passed.

Lots of tropical fish have now arrived on the East Australian Current and my dive buddy Matt and I found fish like Neon and White-ringed Damsels, Yellow Moon wrasse, Butterflyfish, Grubfish and Stinkfish. The water is warm too at 22 degrees.
