Did some dives in Pv/San Pedro yesterday. Vis ranged from good to bad to ugly. Temps never went below 60. And the nudibranchs were having a mating festival, who knew?

Penny had a giant sea bass swim right by her on 1 dive, and a school of barracuda on another, how nice. A couple swell sharks were spotted deep in a cave.

I had a great time playing with my old, cheap camera.

Here are some photos, enjoy!
