We drove around the peninsula today but conditions continue to look miserable. It is still nice and calm in the marina, and visibility has improved slightly. Before cleaning the bottom of our boat, and yes, I actually did clean it today, I tried out my wide angle lens. I learned not to get too close to my subjects, as the camera doesn't want to focus within six inches. I wish I had taken the macro setup. There were more species of nudibranchs out today, including one I hadn't seen before, Aeolidiella oliviae.
Life is thriving on the pilings. I spotted a tiny Polycera atra on one of the tunicates.
Not all life is doing well. Bacteria covers the few remaining sardines on the bottom.
Hermissenda cruises past a tube anemone
The place is crawling with Hermissenda crassicornis
I found three navanaxes crawling after the nudis
The large object on the bottom turned out to be a bicycle. I could see the pedals in the improved visibility.

"From birth man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free. Buoyed by water, he can fly in any direction, up, down, sideways. Underwater man becomes an archangel." Capt. Jacques Yves Cousteau
