    Long Point, CA

    Dove with Nick

    We met around 9 AM, geared up and went down.

    Nick was prepared to “Southern California Buddy Dive” (aka Solo Dive) but I wasn’t hunting, so I followed him.

    We went the same route as last time (See Dive #66).

    Nick was micro-photographing the reefs.

    Nice and colorful Long Point Reef

    As far as entry – it was easy, but for some reason, my weight belt slipped off – I caught it before it could completely disengage; but it was a pain putting it back on.

    Going Down!

    Chumming the water with Sea Urchins

    We swam South and then back North.

    We saw the sand stir in front of us and then a huge Bat Ray swam past us.

    It scared the shit from Nick.

    If I had seen it, probably me too!

    I walked ashore with my fins off.

    Nick, doing his typical, “I’m taking the hard way out to avoid walking over too many rocks,” dodged three fishing lines and came over some steep rocks.

    He was exhausted.

    A Movie Set At Long Point

    In the parking lot at Long Point, they are building what is obviously a movie set.
