    Dove with Nick

    I met Nick at 9:30 AM at Malaga Cove; it was high tide, so I thought it might be OK.

    Big, well, nuisance waves made the water look muddy; we chose to move on to Long Point.

    Ed was with me; he was going free diving.

    Nick, Ed and I entered the water around 10:30 AM.

    Ed went West to solo dive; Nick and I went East.

    Neither of us were photographing or hunting.

    In a case like this, it’s watching Nick annoy all the sea creatures.

    Visibility was about 15 feet, well probably 10 feet.

    We stayed in water that didn’t go below 25 feet.

    Nick found an octopus hole and started messing with the octopus.

    All in all, an uneventful dive.

    We made it out with no problems.

    Ed was concerned that we were gone over one hour – I had told him to wait 45 minutes.

    Ed didn’t do much free diving.

    I worked from 4 AM to 9 AM.

    I called Nick when I got off and we met around 9:40 AM at Long Point.

    I took a “short cut” from Long Beach through San Pedro that cost me some time.

    The waves were calm.

    Apparently, the Sandeaters were diving there.

    Easy in for the both of us.

    Nick wanted to explore the point near Pigeon Shit Cave; I advised against it because of the fisherman.

    Pigeon Shit Cave

    It’s a great environment, full of kelp, fish and other marine life.

    Suddenly, waves started pushing me.

    Surfacing in swells.

    There was no visibility, so I surfaced and found myself between two reefs very close to shore with fishermen all around.

    I swam back out — ooops!

    We went East and ran across a Bat Ray that scared the crap out of me!

    I backed up to give the Ray space, but I spooked it and it fled, almost hitting Nick who was following.

    We saw a lobster – it’s getting big, so I can come back and catch it October 2nd.

    Nick ran across a fishing line and started tugging on it.

    I thought he was caught, so I swam back to assist.

    Nick was just messing with the fisherman.

    I advised him later that that is bad karma.

    Hot chicks at Long Point

    Some pretty hot chicks were hanging out on the shore.

    We surfaced and went in with no problem.
