There is a storm off Baja that may bring in high surf later in the week, but it was nice and calm this morning. With overcast sky, no wind and no current I anticipated a great dive day. The visibility at Halfway Reef could have been better but it wasn't awful.

A large urchin had taken up residence on top of the Bispira turneri worm. It was soon relocated but the worm never opened for me. There are a lot of new and old Peltodoris mullineri egg coils on the reef but I only found two of the egg-layers themselves

Visibility was a hazy fifteen feet with 55 and no water movement!
