The next dive was the large pipe at White's Point Outfall
We also found a baby abalone near the pipe.
On the way to the Avalon this morning we found some very intersting structure on the sonar in about 110' out in front of Pt. Fermin. Elaine and I decided to do a quick bounce (with a big safety stop) to get an idea of what it was. I only had 11 mins of NDL @ 110' after all of the other dives and Elaine started with less than a full tank. The plan was to go in without cameras because we needed to move fast. We would haul butt down the line, do a quick 5-6 minute survey, and head back up. We both felt a bit of apprehension about leaving the cameras behind but that's what the dive plan called for. Sure enough, the second we stuck our heads underwater on the anchor line we saw FOUR molas swimming in formation about 6ft away! It was an awesome sight and all we could do was look at each other and grin. After enjoying them for a minute we continued on with our plan. It was pitch black down there and I dropped my anchor right in the middle of the "thing". I'm still not sure what the "thing" is because I only had time to clear the anchor and start heading up. Oh well, it's not going anywhere and there'll be another chapter to this story :-)
It was another GREAT day of being on the water, diving, and
