On Wednesday July 4, 2007 I went on the Great Escape open boat to Catalina. The visibility was only about 30' at all sites. I got some great pictures of Phimochirus californiensis (Hermit Crab) at Black Rock. It was a very nice relaxed day of diving.

Hopefully this time I got all of the creature IDs correct so I can leave the post up.

dive 1: Johnson Rock : 55F
dive 2: Black Rock : 60F
dive 3: Starlight Cove : 54F
