According to the weather reports we were not supposed to be diving this weekend. A few light sprinkles fell as we arrived at the marina, but soon gave way to mostly sunny skies. The ocean was a little rough, but the diving was still fun.
We hit Buchanan's Reef first in search of nudibranchs. Fall seems to be a bad time for nudibranch hunting locally. There are a few laying eggs, but we have not been seeing the diversity of species we are used to.

For our second dive we motored over to the Garden Spot, a small offshore reef between Marineland and Abalone Cove. Abandoned lobster traps litter the reef, but have become living reefs themselves. There are also live traps on the reef, so someone hasn't learned that this reef eats traps.
Visibility was poor at both sites, but Kevin, Merry and I were all shooting macro.
