PREVIOUS DIVE Firehouse
Black Rock NEXT DIVE

Viz half of usual due to lingering tropical storm runoff. Shallowest shallows very warm and murky, but improved farther out. Camera flash inadequate/messed up somehow, so low ISO setting resulted in lots of blurry bad photos. :( Towed flag this time which was ok.

Flipped some rocks in the rubble slope area.: small fast star with red dot in middle; mysterious zoomy yellow thing like a naked chiton, firm texture, rolled up into a tight ball when harassed; tiny lovely spotted nudibranch of a new type; lots of sponges and color; lots of freaking-out brittle stars; largish shrimp that buried itself. Near deeper reef an area of sand where all light shells get blown apparently, completely full of tiny heart urchin tests. Adorable "family" of teardrop butterflyfish of several sizes. Baby yellow tangs but didn't see any adults.
