PREVIOUS DIVE Adv. Open Water Certification Dive 5

Day off with Elaine

Dove along breakwater, Elaine ran short on air so we didn't make it to the end. Saw plenty of marine life including lots of fish, sea anemones, starfish, and sea lions. Was on the lookout for nudibranchs but didn't notice any among the tons of starfish.

It was a moderately long surface swim in and out, so we got too tired to continue (yakked again, I'm 2/4) with planned second dive to metridium fields, which was an even longer way out. I was also worried about air because we ran out so quickly on this first dive. It will be a goal for next time!

Also tried to take some photos but I definitely need more practice with that as well. The conditions did not make it easy to get clean shots.
