After a few days of large surf I was hoping the swell models were wrong about today. They were. We had one foot swells with Santana Wind-generated whitecaps in the morning, but by the afternoon we had glassy seas. We drove from Redondo Beach to Portuguese Bend looking for diveable water. We found milk. While heading back home we shot photos of the landmarks. It was a beautiful day, just not for diving.

Portuguese Point


Trail to Sacred Cove


Abalone Cove


Our float is still on the Marineland, sporting a new hairstyle.


Cardiac Hill


Whale Rock and Pt. Vicente Lighthouse


Christmas Tree Cove


Honeymoon Cove


Dominator at Rocky Point


Great Escape on the Avalon wreck with the Sundiver in the kelp.

As we approached Redondo Beach Merry spotted a Fin Whale. We had trouble locating it once it dived, but its blows were so loud that they could be heard for a half mile.

I hope to write a real dive report tomorrow. The swell models show the ocean flattening. I trust them.
