Craig Hoover found a Felimare californiensis with eggs recently. I wanted to repeat his rare find and Merry wanted to find Epizoanthus leptoderma. The only site I've seen both is Haggerty's. With the poor conditions we've had this year, I was not expecting to find anything. I was almost correct.

I followed a wall for nearly fifty minutes with no luck. I did find seven good-sized abalone which is a great sign. I moved to another wall and scoured one side, then the other. Just as I reached the end of the wall I found my nudi, albeit without eggs. I took a few shots quickly before pointing it out to Merry, who had found her leptoderma earlier.

Visibility at the surface was pretty bad but once below the surface it cleared up nicely. From five feet deep we could see the bottom thirty feet below. We actually got lucky. Visibility was twenty-five feet with 60 water temperature.
