We're heading to Morro Bay on Monday to dive the T pier so we thought we would practice nudibranch photography before we leave. I decided on Hawthorne Reef. I figured it is far enough offshore to get some decent visibility. I figured incorrectly. We had enough current to warrant a granny line to the anchor and flying like flags during our ascent. Even with the strong current, we had eight to ten feet of visibility at best.
I'm hoping the muck diving of Morro Bay will be better.

The current did bring in a few visitors. Despite staying within twenty feet of the anchor I saw four pyrosomas.
