Poor vis but still saw octopus and flounder!
I was surprised today to not only see the deep part posted No Swimming (due to rip currents), but that the smaller pond had really funky visibility. So sad! But I kept at it and was rewarded with one octopus:
I kept trying but couldn't get a great snap, because of the poor visibility in the water. But I'm still happy I saw one! I was thinking with the visibility the way it was, I might have to be happy with none. One is definitely better...
One seal was snoozing when I went in. Two more joined later..when I didn't have my camera! drat!
You can see the visibility wasn't good..this Humu was about a foot away from me and it still wasn't clear.
Eel 1 and 2, below.
Cute flounder. This baby was about maybe 3 inches long, top to tail.
You can see the trail left by the Honu when it dragged itself on land.
Possibly nudibranch eggs.
Starfish legs...this guy was startled when I pulled a fishing line and weight off a rock. My movement turned the rock over and the starfish scooted back under cover.
This wrasse was following me! It is the same kind that I cut fishing line off of a few weeks ago. Maybe it's the same fish. ha.
Still glad to get in the water, even if the vis wasn't good...
