    I fixed my auxiliary second stage by resetting the diaphragm.

    For our second dive, we went to the left of the stairs to look for the barge.

    We spot a Sheephead.

    Nick followed as I looked for the barge; I thought it was just over some kelp, but it wasn’t.

    I looked back, Nick had found it and was swimming toward it.

    It was a little over to the left.

    We did a quick tour of the barge, which is in 50 feet of water near the edge of the park on the East side.

    The Jacques Cousteau Memorial at Casino Point

    We then made our way to the Jacque Cousteau memorial and came across a lobster head.

    The victim of a poacher?

    Obviously, I thought, the victim of a poacher.

    Someone told me later it could have been the shell after it molted – but, antennas and all?

    The view on our safety stop.

    Per Nick, we did our “safety stop” for five minutes at 20 feet.

    We dove all the way to the stairs, then out.

    I was almost trampled by someone in a wetsuit with no fins who rode a wave in to the stairs.

    Air is leaking from the stem of my yellow tank.

    Another day ends at Casino Point.
