Comments:I finally got to dive with HilaryRN71 and had a blast. The conditions were not the best, but with the weather we've had this year, any time I can get in the water is good for me. Hilary, using her beginner's luck found two Hopkin's Rose nudibranchs together.

I found a large Sheepcrab, two octopus and a friendly little lobster, so at least Hilary got to experience a little of what Marineland has to offer. Unfortunately, she got to experience something else it offers...rocky exits in high surf. We did our Two Stooges routine just a foot away from dry land. It was so close I could taste it. I almost did when a wave slammed me forward. :)
No harm, no foul. We made it back up the hill without needing a paramedic. We're making a couple wreck dives tomorrow, so our exits should be a little more graceful.
