We drove around the peninsula today but conditions continue to look miserable. It is still nice and calm in the marina, and visibility has improved slightly. Before cleaning the bottom of our boat, and yes, I actually did clean it today, I tried out my wide angle lens. I learned not to get too close to my subjects, as the camera doesn't want to focus within six inches. I wish I had taken the macro setup. There were more species of nudibranchs out today, including one I hadn't seen before, Aeolidiella oliviae.

Life is thriving on the pilings. I spotted a tiny Polycera atra on one of the tunicates.

Not all life is doing well. Bacteria covers the few remaining sardines on the bottom.

The place is crawling with Hermissenda crassicornis

I found three navanaxes crawling after the nudis

The large object on the bottom turned out to be a bicycle. I could see the pedals in the improved visibility.
