SIGH!! After putting a reasonable dent in my whiskey collection last night it was a late start. Convinced myself it was all part of my master plan! Packed the car with my dive gear and strapped in the missus and the dog for good measure and it was off to Hickory Bay.
decending the gravel rd to the bay I was excited to see the sunshining on some dark blue water. Got to the car park and wtf? Dogs not allowed on this beach signs all over the place. Damn. After a bit of swearing decided I'd drive around to the next bay and have a look at that. So down to Le Bons Bay. No anti K9 signs so suited up and jumped in.... Shoulda stayed at home. If I squinted real hard I could just make out the flopper on the end of my spear. Oh well maybe I could get a feed of paua. There are thousands of paua at Le Bons bay, too bad they are ALL undersize! The biggest one I found was about 3mm under and I was tempted, but after a brief wrestle with my conscience decided to let them lie and learn my lesson.
The question I have is how fast do paua grow?
