Penny, Sean, Mike, and I had a nice dive at the Ancient Sea Cliffs a few days ago. temp 55, max depth 97ft, 43 minutes. 20-30ft vis. Saw 13 species of nudibranchs, and 7 species of Rockfish,

including the following:

Dendronotus Albus, and a few brittle stars

Hopkin's Rose

Tritonia Festiva in the foreground, Sculpin behind it

Flabellina trilineata

Coonstripe Shrimp

Gopher Rockfish

What a great dive! Penny was quite cold after the dive, but after an hour she warmed up enough to

do a shallow second dive. Sean, thanks for diving down to unstick the anchor.

The 2nd dive was at New hope rock. A very nice site, lots of kelp, fish, tons of lobsters, and huge

sponges everywhere, which was very strange for a shallow site. Max depth 37ft, 53min, 59 degrees

(warmer nearer the surface). thermocline was gradual.

Lobster Madness; I counted around 50 in this crevice

Kelp Rockfish

Very Rare Penny-fish
