After reading reports of good conditions at Hawthorne Reef yesterday I decided to try for some wide angle shots of the reef structure and the large Lingcods. Naturally, we had fifteen feet of murky vis. I took a few shots, but spent most of the dive spotting macro subjects for Merry.

Several replica Chinese catamarans cruised the area this weekend. After our dive we checked one out.

We planned to make a second dive at the drainpipe near Rocky Point, but fishing boats in the area dampened our spirits. Merry suggested the Landing Craft again. This time, I set up for macro, hoping to find the tiny snails and crabs we saw yesterday. While looking in a hole I spotted a juvenile Giant Sea Bass, about a foot long. I went over to get Merry so she could get some wide angle of it, but when I got to her, she had three adult GSBs within a couple of feet of her. She had her macro lens on at the time, but the sighting alone made her day.
