|Fog Days of Winter|

Just as we were ready to go diving this morning a thick fog bank rolled in. We waited for a long time, then went to breakfast. It cleared enough to go out so we rushed back to the marina. As we motored out of King Harbor the fog returned, but opened up outside the breakwall enough to dive.
The visibility on Golf Ball Reef seemed as if the fog had reached the bottom. The surge was so strong in places that I saw three kelp plants bobbing by, their holdfasts hovering off the bottom. Sand was stirred everywhere and there was enough surge to knock a few animals around. I saw a limpet rolling across a rock. I thought about turning it upright, but decided to go for the photo op instead.
In spite of the poor conditions I was able to find a lot of variety on the reef. I can't wait to see what the reef actually looks like some day.
