Comments: We had great vis at Marineland this afternoon. The octopus were everywhere, including sitting out in the open. More Hopkin's Rose nudibranchs were spotted, as were a couple of large Cabezon, a Scorpionfish, flatties, Blacksmith, Sandbass, Gobies and deformed starfish. Jeff timed his exit very well. Hilary and I didn't. Jeff helped Hilary up from the rocks while I swam back out to sea to retrieve her fin that fortunately floats. I slammed my knee into a boulder in the surf zone while attempting another exit. A little skin missing but not much else. Still, a great dive with lots to see.
