Date: January 8, 2006
Dive Location: Los Angeles Harbor
Buddy(ies): Jeff Shaw
Time: Afternoon
Wave height: Some big, some small
Comments: The conditions seem to be getting better in Orange and San Diego Counties. Unfortunately, I stayed in L.A. today, so no diving...again! Jeff called me up and invited me to go play on his kayak. We paddled around Cabrillo Marina, past the remains of the S.S. Sansinena wreck and the main channel, where we had to row hard and fast to escape an oncoming fishing boat. As they passed, the crew were laughing at us. We looked at sea stars on the pier pilings, sea lions near the commercial fishing docks and ended the day with a tour of Cabrillo Aquarium. At least we got wet and saw marine life.

Propeller and drive shaft on the rocks from the S.S. Sansinena, a ship that exploded in San Pedro on 12/17/76, injuring 58 and causing 12 million dollars damage. Also, waves crashing into Cabrillo Beach.
