Comments: Due to miscommunication on my part, Claudette didn't show up for our Thursday night romp at the Monument. Lucky her. I talked to Rayna as she was getting out of the water and she told me the vis was two feet at best. Maybe. I took the two heavy pieces of fake coral from Marineland down to the Monument, took several pictures in the one foot vis there and headed back up. I saw a few dead squid and one Pipefish, but not much else. I rode a five foot wave right up onto the beach and walked out just as I planned. :)
Special thanks to Evil Jeff Shaw for his chisel skills in obtaining the coral.
