|Humpback is still hanging around...phytoplankton, too.|

Over the last several weeks, we've repeatedly spotted a small humpback whale between Hermosa and Redondo. Yesterday it was slowly snorkeling off Torrance Beach, where the water appears to contain a colossal thick green bloom of phytoplankton.
Kevin and I sloshed around in surge, current, and extremely low vis at White Point Pipe and Hawthorne Reef - 70 and 66 degrees respectively. We didn't see much in the way of invertebrate life. Almost no nudis were out, and much of the supporting substrate, such as bryozoans and hydroids, looked dead-ish.
Next weekend, Phil will be back in the water. Kevin and I were becoming a little too comfortable with all that deck space!
