Marine life has been AWOL on our local reefs for about five years now. After the latest sea star wasting disease came through, other animals disappeared. Reefs that used to be covered in nudibranchs and rockfish now have a brown growth covering nearly every inch. I've been looking for a new site to dive and found just what I was looking for in Biodome, a dome-shaped rock near Pt. Vicente.

The reef rises from sixty-nine feet at the sand to fifty-one feet at its peak. There are smaller rocks adjacent to Biodome and kelp grows from the reef itself and from the nearby rocks. In the two dives Merry and I made this weekend, we ascended next to the kelp rather than our anchor chain. There is life in the kelp as well.
