Merry and I arrived early to open the gate and were first in the water. We got to see all the exciting animals before everyone else scared them away. :)
As we made our way to the Point we turned to look below us just in time to see a school of Ocean Whitefish. I didn't get any great shots because they just won't hold still.

The vis was at least twenty feet so I was able to shoot a few wide angle shots. We dropped down at the pinnacles to find the usual rockfish everywhere.

Merry checks out the ladder and anchor.

Yellow Zoanthids taking over the Golden Gorgonians.

Giant Keyhole Limpet staring back at me.

A tiny Island Kelpfish held still long enough to show off.

Anemones and cup corals can be found in the shallows on every rock, crack and crevice.

Tiny Serpulid worms dot every rock as well.
