We tried to beat the rain and get in a quick dive at White Point Rock after fueling the boat. The surface water was much nicer than the ripping current and mud from yesterday. We had close to fifteen feet on the reef, but the water had dropped to 49F.
There were lots of nudibranch eggs on the reef. The juvenile blue rockfish were pestering me the way garibaldis do. I wasn't expecting that. They usually stay a few feet away.
Within a minute of surfacing, the rain came. It never let up all the way back to Redondo Beach. At least we didn't have to rinse the boat.
