With the swell models predicting that we will not be diving this weekend, Merry and I made a quick run after work hoping to find some diveable water. The westside of Palos Verdes had plenty of wind chop so we headed back to Hawthorne Reef.
The surface water looked nice, but a dirty layer at sixty feet turned the reef into a night dive.
We anchored within a few feet of the spot we anchored on Sunday so we didn't have to move much to get better shots of the large sponge we found. The blacksmiths were already tucked in for the night but the rockfish seemed quite interested in what we were doing there. They come right up to your mask if you try to take a picture of a nudibranch.
Visibility was twenty feet, with 57F water temp.
