A blustery Christmas morning kept me out of the water. I rarely miss a Christmas dive, so today was disappointing. By late afternoon, I couldn't stand it any longer so I grabbed my camera and headed for a quick drop on the Redondo Beach artificial reef. Merry felt well enough to sleep on the boat rather than at home.

Visibility was a hazy ten feet with some surge. As is common in December, there was not much life on the barge. I covered the entire area and found one simnia on its side and two nudibranchs.
We're planning to make a couple dives under the T-Pier in Morro Bay next weekend so it was good to get in a little macro practice.

Possibly an Appleseed snail, Hespererato vitellina
Paul Kanner will know for sure.
