Went diving today with Jim. We hit a spot near Redondo reef in about 80' of water, and found better vis, maybe 10', maybe a bit more. Better than it has been, but certainly worse than usual. In the better vis it was more apparent that some of our trusty cement boxes (set as part of the artificial reef in the 70's) were moved or flipped or broken up In the storm.

2nd dive was on the barge. it was hard to tell if new panels have opened up, but the interior is certainly more open, interior bulkheads are down, the floor has been scoured and white paint is visible, much more scouring underneath it. Vis again better than it has been, but worse than usual.

Final dive was a quick dip in shallow water off Malaga, vis was quite low.

Surface conditions were certainly nice.
