Max beat me to it.
Dive 2 1:49 PM. We walked south about 100 yards south of the Vets park stairs along the bike path to a line of rocks extending into the ocean. Once again we waded out into remarkably clear water. But here as we swam out we could see the water turn noticeably darker and we could no longer see our fins as we floated before descending about even with the end of the pier. We dropped down into 12 feet of water and headed off on a course of 270 degrees in search of deeper water, better visibility and something to see. There was a distinct layer of dark reddish water that thinned out below 20 feet or so. Spotted lots of the usual suspects, including a decorator crab and two baby 4-6 inch horn sharks hiding behind kelp leaves on the sand. Had to cut the dive short due to an appointment at 4:00.
All in all, sure beat working all day.
