|Floods and duds in the crud|

Our day began on a usual note. The ocean was nice most of the week, then four foot swells arrived just in time for the weekend. After looking at the water three miles off Redondo Beach I decided to hit Hawthorne Reef again.
I grabbed the video rig instead and hoped for the best. The water seemed to get dirtier the deeper I went. A brown layer hovered three feet off the bottom, so I remained near the anchor. Visibility was about eight feet.
As we approached the Marineland platform for a second dive I couldn't see our buoy. It had been cut away from the new line I just installed. My drysuit will be going in for repair Monday. It's had a small leak in the crotch for a month. It's embarrassing when I get out of my suit and everyone points and laughs. Now I need a new housing, camera, lens and buoy and repaired drysuit. :(
Here is my meager effort in poor visibility. I hope to be back shooting stills soon.
