I've been surprised on a few occasions when the dive conditions were decent following a couple days of rain and high surf. Today was the rule rather than the exception.

The ocean was calm enough to head to the south side of Palos Verdes. As we approached Rocky Point I saw three Gray whales, a Mother and calf with a male escort surface in the kelp. As I tried to put my motors into neutral my port motor refused to cooperate. I had to turn the key and forego our excursion to Little Reef.

As we limped back on one motor I told Kevin we should dive Golfball Reef as it was on our way. Visibility was about five feet and the bottom was so stirred up that every photo I took had to be at least twenty feet off the reef. At least the water had warmed up to 53.
