We had warm water, 64F at depth, good vis of 15-20 feet, flat surface for easy entry/exit and enough small cobbles in the water to make donning/doffing fins easier so we could walk out.
During the debriefing held in the parking lot an old friend of Elaine Jobin's stopped by to visit.

As for the dive, four of us swam out to the Point in search of the statue at Ted's Pinnacle. It eluded us once again. With the good vis and bright Sunlight we could see animals everwhere. Merry found two Mexichromis porterae nudis and several other species. While she was looking down at a rockfish a small Batray cruised by. She missed it. After over an hour under water we made our way back to the cove.
The walk up to the parking lot is a bit strenuous, especially on a hot day. The new trail is twice as long as the old one. I began sweating around 7:30 and finally stopped around 3:00.
