Redondo Beach was as flat as I have ever seen it tonight. With the impending storm, Merry and I rushed to get in a dive. I rushed so much I forgot our weightbelts. After driving home in my drysuit we headed into the clear, cool and calm water. As soon as we dropped, two sea lions came to welcome us, or scare us. I'm not sure which.
The visibility in the Salad Bowl was a nice fifteen feet, but dropped to ten feet deeper in the canyon. I had 61F at depth.
It was juvenile night at Vet's. Baby moonsnails, crabs, shrimp and a tiny octopus skated along the sand. Schools of baitfish swirled overhead until we headed back toward the beach, where the visibility began to drop by the end of the dive.
