Parking was very full today (saturday) but the conditions were very nice. I showed 81F for a temp
and viz in the 25 ft range, very diveable. Was just ready to skip the dive and someone pulled out
from one of the last spots from the far east end of the parking area. It was actually kinda nice, had a little
shade and not much of a hike back to the beach area. I had 80F for friday and 81F for saturday.
22 fsw, 94 minutes, 85F...
Planning on diving BHB Tuesday, what's the water temperature and viz report this weekend?? OMG, I had to go to page TWO to find the TROLL thread!!!
Thursday it rained, so what would have been decent viz sorta wasn't. Didn't see a whole lot, but spent a lot of time checking out the same area I was in a couple of months ago - unsuccessfully.
Yesterday was one of my best dives ever. Even got a couple of lucky shots with the cameras.
Today was another decent day with at least 30+ feet of viz early on. I've been entering a couple of hours before high tide this trip and am thinking that's the way to go. I'll take good viz and deal with the current - which hasn't been bad at all.
Been wearing 3mm and no hood and would not have gotten chilly except for hanging in the same spots for so long. But, staying still leads to three hour dives and the use of lots of electrons via photo equipment. Who knows when I'll get around to processing many of the shots, though. I'll see if I've got a couple done from Thursday. Oddly, the little gurnard did not fly only in circles. The angelfish was screening his octo buddy in the pipe.
hey, Kevin didn't know you were in town.. I did a solo yesterday, would have loved to hooked up! Oh well.
this is my find of the day, and of course need an ID..

Finally getting the super macro thing down. No flash, so there is a lot of post editing in photoshop to get the green out. Auto focus wants to focus on everything except what I want it to focus on, so a lot of shots are of the detris nearby not the subject.. super clear..LOL

Afraid I ain't much of a dive buddy. Matter of fact, I seem to get on most folks' nerves topside, too. Did you *really* see that shrimp/lobster yesterday?? Why not just jab a stake into my heart?? How many urchins did you have to scan to find that thing?? Did you use a magnifying glass?
Actually, I did have a little luck, myself, yesterday. . .
Convince me that *this* is a case of not-fighting. . .
Lots of scary stuff down there yesterday. Going froggie hunting today. Any tips?

Reminded me of Hitchcock's "The Birds" when those scary schools of fish kept surrounding me. Never seen starfish about to blow before. And, that great big pipefish looked like a headless snake with his white nose blending in. . .
can't decide whether the fish schools come across better "processed" or plain. Maybe I just tend to "over"-process.
