Kevin Lee and I had a nice dive at OML today. walked the long trail, swam out to the point. what a workout! Made it all the way back underwater for an easy exit.

62ft deep, 53 degrees brrr(68 on the surface though). 15-20ft vis. it was nice hanging out with everyone in the parking lot after the dive.

enjoy the photos, Scott

Schooling Rock wrasse. I rarely see rock wrasse schooling, it was very cool to see them bunched up and polarized...they are such beautiful fish...

Rainbow surfperch, always a treat to see these guys

young Painted greenling

Multi-colored sand anemones. This was a surprising find, in shallow water, the different colors were so nice.

Zooanthid anemones

Hudson's dorid nudibranch, Acanthodoris hudsoni. I had originally thought it was a Cadlina luteomarginata. We saw 9 species of nudibranchs on the dive. Phil & Merry saw 3 additional species, for a total of 12 for today.
