Well...I dive allot of mornings when it probably makes more sense to roll over and sleep in. Saturday morning, ...was not one of those times to roll over.

Laguna was a picture perfect postcard; sunny, warm, no wind, soft swell, viz everywhere to 30+'.

Frank and I made it out to the very end of the reef and located the thumb shaped feature I observed on our last dive. In this area the kelp looks green and healthy, not yellow and disintegrating like closer to shore.

Unfortunately, Sargassum is appearing on the North face of the near shore reef.

On the way back to the beach in 20' of water I spotted two 9-10" abalone in a crevice. They looked bigger than most I've seen and appeared healthy. I've read reports of abs spending 10 years in the same spot, so we'll look for those two again.
