Comments: Claudette (HBDiveGirl) wanted to get in a little more drysuit practice so we met with Jeff Shaw for a late afternoon dip. It's difficult to tell due to her perpetual smile, but I think Claudette loves diving dry!
We walked down to the Topaz Jetty in search of the pilings and Lion nudibranchs. We didn't find either, but still had a great time. Lots of small octopus, baby Horn sharks and the usual cast of characters were out and about. The top 35 feet of water was a reddish-brown pudding, but vis opened up to 20-25 feet below that. Looking up at the canyon dropoff reminded me of a red fog bank moving over the edge. We had a lot of fun playing with the critters and enjoying the good company. We even had a youg sea lion playing with us at the surface as we exited the water. Nice way to break up a long work week.
