    Logged Dive #58 at Long Point

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Dove with Nick

    We met at 8 AM.

    Watching the waves I saw two divers go in and cancel the dive shortly thereafter.

    I don’t know why, but there was a woman there; that might explain it.

    It was an easy entry; the swells were 1 to 2 feet and I did the new “enter with one fin on” trick.

    We swam to the first kelp bed North of Pigeon Shit Cave.

    The visibility sucked.

    I was hoping it would be a good as last weekend.

    There was a slight current pulling us South.

    We surfaced and tried to find the second kelp bed.

    It took a few tries, but we found a reef and hung out there for the remainder of the dive.

    Nick was photographing, I was sightseeing.

    Crap!  I don’t know what this is, but it looks like a strange star fish.

    Orange star fish embrace each other.

    A rock fish, maybe sculpin?? hides on a reef.   Help me with the name!

    A nudibrach!

    A sea slug.

    Walking out from the cove at Long Point.

    Easy out!

    Easy out, but as always, I was knocked down by a wave walking ashore.
