With a couple of days with nice weather I was hoping for a decent dive after work today. We headed for the Redondo Beach Artificial Reef where we found oily, green surface water. When we dived here last week we had a layer of dirty water that was only three feet thick. Today it reached the bottom.
While looking for some of the minuscule nudibranchs I found recently I continuously saw shadows move overhead. Each time I looked up I saw nothing but sea snot. Merry was able to get some nice jelly shots in the soupy water. I had to settle for more of the usual life on the barge.
Visibility was eight feet on the barge but much less in the water column. Water temperature was 50.
