The ocean was flat as predicted, except when another boat came by and rocked us with its wake. Coffee spilled, utensils fell to the floor and I had just vacuumed this morning.
Our first dive was on a wooden pier piling off the Topaz Jetty. We didn't find any nudibranchs as Craig Hoover did, but I had shrimp pose for me. Visibility was great for Vet's. It was easily twenty-five feet. There was a little of what Merry calls sand scatter, but not nearly as much as we had later at the Hermosa Artificial Reef.

The water at Hermosa was clear, but filled with schmutz. I picked a bad dive to try for wide angle. I found a Dendronotus iris next to the anchor, but I couldn't get much detail with a 16-35mm lens. I called Merry over to see if she have better luck.
