Comments: Jeff Shaw took me up on my suggestion of White Point for our not-very-weekly Thursday night dive. I hadn't been here for years due to the usual poor vis, but we had 25'+ tonight. Highlights included a Banded Guitarfish and a four foot Black Sea Bass that came up to my face three times. There were lobsters everywhere in the shallows near shore, none outside the reefs. We warmed our hands in one of the hot water vents before surfacing to find Victory at Sea. We made it back to the beach after an eternity of waiting, then hiked back up the fire road. I had forgotten how long that road is with a tank on my back.
