    Neither Nick or John H could make it; so, being so macho, I went anyway.

    Nobody was around Malaga Cove.

    It was dark, the parking lot was pretty much deserted.

    It was low tide so I went in on the sandy side of the coast.

    It seemed darker than I remember it being.

    I had been there earlier to check out the conditions – it was flat as a pancake, but the waves were picking up.

    I had a slight problem putting my fins on.

    I swam out where Rossler pool is, well, I don’t know what it’s called now.

    I submerged to 15 feet.

    It was a little spooky – nighttime solo diving; kelp looked like lobsters, sharks and the boogie man.

    I caught three lobsters, all too small.

    There’s something to say about Darwinism.

    The really big lobsters that I saw fled as soon as they sensed the light.

    Some really small lobsters – who I felt like screwing with, actually charged my light.

    I hereby declare Malaga Cove, “fished out” of lobsters.

    I had taken my main light’s strap off my hand to measure a lobster.

    I forgot about this and had to dive for it when I let go of it coming onshore.

    Out with little problem, other than the above.

    It is very shallow for a long way in the sand.
