|Incredible weekend at San Miguel/Santa Rosa Islands|

We made two dives at Prince Island. The water was filled with fry, but if we looked hard enough we could see quite a ways around the reefs. Nearly every inch of the reefs were covered with invertebrates and algae. Tiny exposed sections of rock were few and far between. Anemones, Gorgonians, nudibranchs, and fish of all sizes clammored to be next in line for a photo op.
The wind had blown all night, but the hearty hikers sloshed through the whitecaps to explore the Torrey Pines of Santa Rosa, We made two more dives nearby, but this time the excitement was at the surface. Wind and current made getting to the reef difficult, but getting back to the boat was even more fun. With twenty years of diving under my weight belt, I was the least experienced of the group. We all made it back without a problem.
