Frank Lukowski and Charlie Bartleson joined us today for two dives on the Westside. We began our day with the best visibility we've ever seen on the Redondo Barge. It was easily thirty-five to forty feet. I shot video on the first dive while Merry and Frank flashed strobes constantly. Several small lingcod patrolled the sand, and we even had a couple of jelly sightings.
Our next stop was the crane off Haggerty's. Thwe water was green and full of particulates here. The large kelp forest was gone, leaving barren sand around the barge. Several garibaldi nests had eggs that were nearly fully developed. Charlie shot video on this dive, and got a mating pair of garibaldis. One of the moray eels was in his usual perch, but wouldn't come out, even for the squid we brought with us.

Here's a few of Merry shots.
