Dive 146
OF 146

For all that this was only 2 degrees colder than Mala/Kahekili the previous day, felt colder immediately on entry. Shallow for a long way despite high tide, drop-off near mouth of bay to sand and then 2nd reef. Lots of fish: yellowline goatfish, brown surgeonfish (spawning, and in continuous streams heading places), large soldierfish under a big ledge that I entered and found a big sleeping head-in turtle. Tailing Risbecia imperialis pair stretched across a gap that looped back on themselves and lost each other, single one, and a relatively large ceratostoma (?) that I'd never seen before. Lots of smallish eels, mostly whitemouth with 1 stout and 1 snowflake that I didn't see. Surprisingly short when they swam out fully. On last 3rd of dive very near under snorkelers. Long end swim to retrieve stupid flag. Day ocotpus in hole, though.
