It is bad… A wildfire burns a few thousand acres. Follow that up with torrential rains to sweep all of the ash and mud onto the reef. There is a reason we are not diving this weekend. We had planned to, the water needs a week to clear out the murk. It will be interesting to see the impact on the reef.
Not a good day to go snorkeling.
Heavy surf the day before left a legacy, murky water. Visibility was rather poor today. Whenever the surf is high the visibility is low. The surfers may be happy, the divers and snorkelers less so. At least these conditions are not all that common, if a somewhat more so in the winter months. Wait a few days and the silt will settle, leaving the more usual clear Kona side water.
At least we had a good swim.
