Comments: HBDiveGirl (Claudette) invited me for a midweek splash into the brown soup we affectionately refer to as Vets. We dropped down into the canyon to find night dive conditions with no more than eight feet visibility. No problem. We just go into macro mode. We found more than ten octopi, a few different species of nudibranchs, a yellow kelp crab, decorator crab with so much algae on it it looked more like a crawling rock and lots of baby fish. We stayed down for a little over an hour until my light began flickering. I called the dive, figuring it was dark enough that my backup light wouldn't help much. We were surprised to see sunshine and blue skies as we surfaced. It was foggy and windy as we entered. It turned out to be a day at the beach.

Claudette gets ready to dive.
