|Interesting dive day|

Merry Passage and I had an interesting day yesterday. We had excellent visibility at Biodome, a small reef off Pt. Vicente. Hermissenda opalescens covered the reef by the thousands. We struck out for the fourth time in our search for Babakina festiva, but still had fun. We made a second dive at Torrance Reef to look for Doto columbiana, which are numerous there. I found three Cuthona divae together, which I have never seen before.
I've had an airfill card sitting unused for a few years, as I've been diving primarily nitrox. Earlier this month, I filled my tanks with air just to finish off the card. Yesterday's dives were 70 feet for 72 minutes followed by a 1:13 surface interval, then a second dive to 60' for 1:03. I followed my computer, ascending with a few minutes of ndl on each dive. It wasn't until I was rinsing my gear that I realized my computer had reset to 32%. I'm sure I skipped quite a bit of deco obligation. In 43 years of diving, I have never made a mistake like that. I didn't get bent, but I will certainly double-check my computer before getting in the water again.
