While we continue to wait for repairs on our boat, Merry decided the unusually great visibility in the marina was too tempting. She made a dock dive while I played Divemaster/gear washer. She found dozens of Navanax inermis laying eggs, small anemones, and some tiny worms. After looking at her photos, I checked out the tide table and headed back to the marina to sneak in a dive myself. Naturally, visibility was pretty bad when I jumped in.

I made the best of things by concentrating on looking for the tiniest critters. I had my 105mm lens with a +5 diopter, so getting Navanax was impossible in the cloudy water. I did OK on the tiny things.
