Buoyed with hope by the diminishing swell and Margaret Webb's photos from their recent dive, Phil and I headed for the Avalon this morning. We stayed near the bow, where there was greenish 10' vis, 57 degrees.
My objective on this dive was to photograph piddock clams. These bivalves are unique in that they gradually burrow into rock or other hard substrate, where they live their entire lives, entombed. They're so abundant in this area that they've fractured parts of the rocky reef, leaving some of their piddock neighbors exposed to predators.
