Totally can relate to that. I was doing an altitude dive last weekend in a lake that has an underwater river flowing through it. I kept thinking the current was taking me to the west, but my compass told me I was going east. I choose to ignore my compass and surfaced a long way away from my beach. Turns out I was in an eddy in the lake part that ran upstream to the river.

My instructor tells every student that if you can dive in the Northwest you can dive anywhere. With the algae blooms in the summer pretty much every dive below 10M turns into a night dive and you need to be nav and low light proficient. Then in the winter it might clear up but it gets so cold that you still need to be on your game. These waters keep you honest that’s for sure.
