|Diving sucks, but we found some incredible animals|

We didn't expect to get in the water today after yesterday's debacle but needed gas for our next dives. The water on the way to Los Angeles Harbor was a milky green. After filling up the tanks and saving over $140 compared to filling up in King Harbor we checked out the U.S.S. Iowa, San Pedro's newest attraction. It will open to the public on July 7th.
After leaving Angel's Gate we noticed the dirty water had moved east. We could see a clear boundary between the crud and much clearer water. We considered diving one of the nearby shipwrecks, but it was late in the afternoon and we knew we would get pounded once the wind came up.
While looking for more jellies, Merry spotted a baseball sized animal floating on the surface. It may be some kind of deep water cephalopod. It doesn't look like any jelly, octopus or squid I have ever seen. We scooped it up in a bucket for some photo ops.
We decided to get in the water after all so we could get some images of the little guy under water. The brown water near the bottom was thicker than yesterday. I got a few seconds of video, then checked out a brick on the sand that has three octopus nests on it.
