Three to five feet swells at five second intervals. Not the kind of news you want to read before a dive, but we wanted to check out conditions before a big dive day tomorrow. We pounded our way around the peninsula, seeking any shelter from the SW swells. We tucked into the Garden Spot, a small reef between Marineland and Abalone Cove. The bottom here is silty, so any water movement makes for a difficult day of photography. Today was no exception. Most of my shots were nothing but backscatter, but I was able to clear up a few with the help of Photoshop.
