If you dive a site often enough, you may see the same fish or schools of fish time after time. It's this way on the reefs of Honeymoon cove. One reef consistently sports a moray eel, several large male sheephead, and a school of rubberlips. While a few hundred feet away, another reef showcases a different array of resident fish.

Four black croakers live on Merry's reef. Sometimes, they hide out in a school of black perch.

I can't remember the last time we saw sargo around Palos Verdes. This was a huge school.

Checking out a new reef last Sat., we were treated to a Mola mola cleaning station. Tough to see propeller cuts on one, but neither were as wary as the smaller ones we usually encounter. Vis had deteriorated considerably from the week before.
