very good vis, very cold water during our dive at marineland with Phil & Merry. Lots of sculpins were out, 2 cabezons were sighted, and a spearfisher killed a baby lingcod, barely 24 inches if that. Entered and exited at the point. Theme for the day - sculpins


Cuthona Divae nudibrach

Painted Greenling

Island Kelpfish

Tube Anemone

Light Bulb Tunicates

My strobe stopped working after the tunicate photo, these are all with the internal flash.

"Happy Sculpin". This photo is called happy sculpin, not because of the snubnose sculpin in the

foreground, but because of the 2nd sculpin behind him (look above his shoulder).

Snubnose Sculpin and a Sea Fan

Copper Rockfish, who just put his dorsal fins up. A gopher rockfish was right next to him.

Sculpin resting on a lemon dorid, tired from Yoga class. Maybe a smoothhead or padded sculpin

(probably an Artesius species).

Atagema alba Nudibranch, my first sighting in so-cal (not counting La Bufadora). They are hard to

spot and easily go un-noticed. (Penny spotted it).
