Comments: Claudette joined me for a little afternoon delight at Marineland. The water looked a little dirty, but entry at the point was possible, so in we went. Halfway through the dive I decided to check my computer because it felt a little chilly. 48 degrees chilly to be exact. It was so cold, my expert navigational skills went on vacation to warmer waters. We found a broken bow roller from a boat...twice! :) We also found a couple of egg-laying Cuthona divae nudis, Hopkin's Rose, two Tritonia festivas, Cadlina limbaughorums and a large Dendronotus iris. We just had to watch it swim. We did manage to put it back next to a couple of tube anemones, so it will have dinner soon.
We made it back to the cove, where we were delighted to find warm Sunlight at the surface. It was a bit on the cold side, but the best way to spend an afternoon.
