    It’s been very rough the last week.

    I went down to Malaga Cove after work to check on the conditions.

    Tom from American Diving was leaving with two other divers and a lobster.

    Tom advised, “It’s good, but no tide… go diving.”

    I called Nick; we agreed to meet around 7 PM.

    We were the only divers there.

    In the water – off the sand – at about 7:20 PM.

    Since it was ultra low tide, the sand was a must.

    We went South-West searching for lobsters on water that didn’t get deeper than 15 feet.

    We caught several shorts, but released them.

    One big, legal one got away; I think it was the only legal one I saw.

    Fifteen shorts sighted for one legal I think was the ratio.

    My mask leaked until I fixed the purge valve.

    We exited with no problem.

    We met some other divers going in – one was a woman!
