I often get depressed when dive conditions are bad for a few weeks. This past week was different. I was angry. I have read many dive reports over the past few days delighting everyone with blue water and incredible visibility. During that spell of great conditions the Santa Monica Bay has been socked in with a moving blanket of fog. Just as it began to clear in one area another dense cloud would move in to take its place. This morning I wake up at 5:30. Merry said it was still foggy so we went back to sleep. By 10:00 the fog had thinned to the north so we raced up to the Elevated Pipe off El Segundo.
Visibility underwater was as good as I've seen here, up to thirty feet. We had no trouble finding tiny subjects among the moon sponges. By the time we surfaced the wind had picked up and we had to bounce our way home in the choppy seas. If 2018 will allow us to get in the water once a week I might be happy by the end of the year. Maybe.
