Crazy Dive!

This was a crazy dive due to current changes. It was difficult for me to maintain my bouyancy due to the changes. Seems that the water swirling around the pillars kept throwing me around. We did see huge lobsters and scates, etc. on this dive. At our safety stop, with 35 seconds to go, we were taken downward to 30 feet immediately. I thought my computer bit the dust. I had a time figuring out what happened. My ears were talking to me. I guess it was a down current. Very strange.
