Patrick Smith and Cindy Shaw joined us for dives on the Redondo Barge and Haggerty's Crane. Several sea lions waited very impatiently for us to get in the water. They cavorted with us the entire dive. I was set up for macro on this dive, so no pics.
Within a minute of dropping on the barge I found more octopus eggs. Octomom moved out of the way long enough for me to get three shots. These eggs are new without embryos, so we get to watch them develope this time.

Merry spotted another blob on the same rock she found a Hallaxa chani nudibranch on earlier. This time the blob was a Cadlina modesta, another first-time sighting for us.

Our next dive was on the crane off Haggerty's. This time I set up for wide angle, but none of my shots were in focus. When I got home I notived that the lens had been switched to manual focus. Without focus gear there was nothing to do under water but look around.
I spotted a harbor seal a few times and Patrick got a couple shots of a giant sea bass. My only shot worth posting is Merry looking at the moray eel.
