Last night I had a lot of expectations because of many reasons: I love night dives, I haven’t done the site in over 2 months, I knew the froggies are around and my buddies kept really busy last night dive they did.
SK and I started the dive looking for that one sea Urchin that Susan M noticed it had a pregnant squat lobster.
While looking for it SK found one of the F. Marcussorum on a shell stock to a seaurchin in the area that Susan M showed me an orange amphipod the Tuesday before. He brought it to me like a beautiful bucquet of flowers. The current was so strong in nudi world that was taking my setup and me like a flag. I burned 500 psi just getting there but we really wanted to find the pregnant squat lobster. I had trouble positioning and didn’t have a light holder on top of the housing, which made it a very difficult dive. The current also took the purpullina north :( and my subsee when I flipped it open. I almost lost it.
Despicte of the difficulties I managed to find lots of learchis, different types of
dondice, the white nudi with the black speckles-photo is really bad. , 4 bumble bee hiding in the grass, a flatworm for Linda (I only included a “pol” photo since it quickly vanish in the hydroids), a shrimp, octo and finally a baby searobin the red kind. About 3 inches big.
I never found Judy’s precious yellow tiny froggie. I didn’t have the chance to get to the area I saw it last. And I am sad because I am going to have to leave town without seeing it one more time.
To top the night off when we got home we noticed a bit of water in the housing. The camera didn’t get wet and we don’t know where it was coming from so I don’t feel like taking the camera I want to be just a spotter on Sat. I am on a chill mood and don’t want that kind of stress. We decided to skip Friday dive and relax.
