|The Great Depression|

When conditions are bad or we can't dive for any reason I get really depressed. I guess I need a life. When we're not diving we are usually writing, reading or talking about it. Today was our first time in the water in two weeks and it felt like months.
The ocean was flat, despite the swell models calling for three to five feet today. We had thirty feet visibility for our first dive at the Redondo Beach Barge. Large Mola Molas were being cleaned over the sand. Kevin Lee went inside the barge to look for the cabezon nest. I knew he wouldn't find the eggs because the cabbie was swimming around outside.
While I was photographing the tiny yellow fin fringehead Merry found last month she found a second one ten feet away.
I found a tiny Dendronotus frondosus nearby. When I saw it I hoped it was a new nudibranch for my collection but once I zoomed in my first photo I recognized it.
We made out next dive on the crane near Haggerty's. Visibility was about twenty feet with no water movement at all. Our anchor rode remained limp throughout the ninety minute dive.
