We got up before dawn this morning with anticipation of photographing egg-laying of the Felimare californiensis Merry found yesterday. I loaded the car and then waited for the dense fog to lift. Four hours later, we were still waiting. Finally, we pushed away from the dock into dissipating vapors that allowed us to see far enough ahead to not hit any paddle boarders. As we neared the Landing Craft, more vapor troubles arise as our starboard motor shut down. It's not getting any gas, although the tank is half full. Oh, goody. I get to work on the boat again tomorrow.

We crawled along on one motor to the wreck and dropped down to find poor visibility and missing nudibranchs. I eventually found them hiding under a large battery. I coaxed them back to the sponge they were eating yesterday. They began chomping away immediately. There were no eggs to be found, so we'll have to try again in a week or so.
