|Strangers In The Night|

We were looking for something different this weekend. We tend to dive the same sites over and over, photographing the same animals. Merry suggested, or more like demanded that we dive in mid water during the pre-dawn hours. I told Kevin Lee her plan and he was willing.
We set out EARLY this morning for a gelatinous critter search. We marveled at how lovely the city lights are in the middle of the night, yet none of us took a picture. The ocean was dead calm except for the sea lions and dolphins cavorting nearby. One pup made a game of dive bombing Merry and Kevin. We heard the squeaks of the dolphins for several minutes during our ascent.
We didn't find anything interesting in mid water so we dropped to the bottom. I found a new octopus nest and Kevin found two Aeolidiella oliviae. I surfaced a few minutes before Kevin and Merry. The floaters showed up after I left the water, so maybe M&K got some great shots.
We dropped near Ted's Pinnacle. Visibility was a murky fifteen feet despite the calm, flat water. I took pictures of the same animals over and over again. I did find an unidentified worm burying itself in the sand.
