Date: May 10, 2006

Buddy(ies): Merry and Shanon
Bottom Time: 42 minutes
Max Depth: 67'
Wave height: 3-4'
Temp at depth: 53F
Comments: I stayed up late tonight so I could join the DiveVets gang at Redondo. Merry, flanked by the Lime Green Drysuit crew dropped into the twilight waters where we were greeted by a thermocline at 30 feet. Shanon and I hardly noticed. Merry is going to order her drysuit tomorrow.
We slowly made our way to the Monument where we found several fish and an octopus in a 40 ounce beer bottle. Out over the sand we encountered a tiny, thumb-size octopus, a pipefish, Rainbow nudibranch, a few juvenile Horn sharks and baby Batrays in the shallows. They were hard to see dur to the tons of kelp and surf grass mixed in the surf zone.
Shanon is dreaming about the dive...or passing out from the debriefing afterward.
