Comments: Ross, Jeff and Claudette joined me for some fun in the mud tonight at Vet's Park in Redondo Beach. We split into two teams so Ross could get reaquainted with his drysuit and doubles. No major problems. We had great vis walking into the water. Without lights, we could see the rays in the sand below us on our entry. Ross and I headed down into the canyon to see if we could find some squid. We found two, a few eggs and lots of fun playmates. Baby Batrays were swimming about, seemingly not afraid of us at all. Purple striped jelly, Sarcastic Fringeheads, lots of octopus, navanax, boccacio, round stingrays and the usual assortment of critters were out and about. We even found the Monument this time. We cut the dive short after we came back up into the shallows, but could have easily stayed another hour. It was the flattest I've ever seen Redondo.
