Evil Jeff and I made a short dive at Vet's this morning. He had a short fill so our plans to go into the canyon and find squid became a "Let's stay shallow and hope we find something" dive. Merry asked me to shoot video of squid egg sacs swaying in the surge. Fortunately we found two patches of eggs just before heading uphill. As we reached the shallow water I spotted a Dendronotus iris nudibranch. It was the first time I had seen the brown version outside of La Jolla Cove.
We were able to walk out of the water without falling or losing any of the three cameras we were carrying, so it was one of the best eighteen minute dives I've ever had. We had a murky ten feet of vis down to 25 feet with a nice 18-20 feet below that. Water temperature was 52F.
