Comments: For my last day of vacation I joined MissyP for a couple of dives at Marine Room in search of the elusive Cuthone divae nudibranchs that Terry (divinman) posted last month. On Sunday we wanted to find Hopkin's Rose nudis at Marineland and found six. Our luck held on Monday. We found five Cuthona divaes.

It's September, so the lobsters are back in the shallows. They were in every hole along the wall of the canyon as well as an engine block. One even disappeared completely by hiding in the sand dollar bed. :D

Other nudis were in amongst the sand dollars as well.

After my batteries died we came upon a four foot halibut. Missy tried to get next to it for size comparison, but the halibut was shy and swam about ten feet away, then up toward the shallows.
One of the highlights of La Jolla during the Summer is the entertainment. I could sit and listen to people ask,"Are you leaving?" all day. :D
One person came up with a solution.
