Dive reports: Angela Robson Millshore is a lovely dive site, shallow, even in HW. Lots of life there. Even better if the sun is shining.

Dive reports: Angela Robson 4/8/11  Dave led us into the first cave, which is always full of life. Not disappointed this evening. Lots of those squat lobsters that give me the heeby jeebies (not the long clawed squatties - the ones that look like giant spiders with furry legs), velvet swimmers, common lobsters, blennies, tiny flatfish, mating scorpion fish, shrimps. We continued through the caves, and each time I go through the middle one, I am always on the look out for the conger, as I recall that was the first time I saw it on my first ever dive of Millshore. We reached the end of the caves and on the other side of the reef. We sat and watched a shoal of sand eels before making our way back through the caves again.
