Re: Whidbey Island Critters

After almost two days, electric power is back on ! Langley Harbor January 8th. So many lost traps littering the sea floor... People place them from the floating dock and the lines get tangled in the mooring cables holding the docks and make it impossible to recover the traps later. In the past I hel...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

The Keystone Jetty might be now open to divers again, but southerly winds make it difficult there, so instead of new pictures, here are more from Saturday dive. And did I mention that there are many Wrinkled dogwinkle snails there ? And Striped seaperch too... :) https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Key...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

Saturday, January 9th. It was cold, but waiting for sunrise under the mostly clear skies was made bearable in good company of friends. We were rewarded by good visibility underwater. So it all was worth leaving the warm bed while it was still dark and freezing outside :) :) :) https://photos.smugmug...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

First dive of the new year. Lagoon Point, January 1st 2021. The weather around Whidbey Island was not the nicest, plenty of wind and rain. So I dived into the protected waters of the canal and revisited the muck habitat under the floating docks. https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Lagoon-Point/i-2pRVwQ...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

I can't compete with the national news about the coup attempt in the nation's Capitol.
But I can share good news from Keystone, the dredging machinery is gone !

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

The word on the street is that the dredging is finished and they are just cleaning up the area before finally departing and let us dive again. Meanwhile, here are some snaps from the December 31st dive at the Pilings. Unfortunately, the area under the old wharf is nothing what it used to be. Schools...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

December 31st. For the last dive of 2020 I visit the Keystone Jetty, which is still being affected by the dredging of the ferry landing. Because the work continues even on this day before the New Year Eve celebrations begin, This required the long swim from the old wharf to the jetty and back. Which...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

And here we are, January 1st, 2021. However, there are still photos from last year dives to be processed. After all, why take pictures if nobody sees them ? 🙂 Skyline, December 17th. https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Fidalgo-Island-and-vicinity/i-vTpdLcT/0/386ef501/XL/12.27.20%20Skyline%20dive%201-XL...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

As the old, sickly and cranky year 2020 winds down, I am trying to catch up with processing pictures of the local marine life. Nothing exotic, just showing some of our critters and the environment they live in. https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Fidalgo-Island-and-vicinity/i-DNxChCS/0/fcf87d12/XL/12.2...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

December 26, Skyline. Meet under the gray skies with fellow diving addicts Eric, Scuba Jess and Don. We were rewarded with decent, 15 feet visibility, which for Skyline is very good. Looking for Candy under the Crimson anemone, found Scaled crab instead :) https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Fidalgo-Is...

Re: Whidbey Island Critters

Deception Pass, December 23rd. Sea star survey. It looks like stars are doing well, although their numbers did not recover to the pre-wasting days. No sign of the Sunflower star which used to be common here :( https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Deception-Pass-Whidbey-Island/i-4kgLD8L/0/cec1ba21/X2/12....

In spite of dredging the Keystone ferry harbor, the Lingcod love goes on in the murky waters :) Feather boa kelp made appearance again. Sea stars healthy too. https://photos.smugmug.com/Other/Keystone-Jetty/i-dz7V6Xm/0/39d84bfb/XL/12.20.20%20Lingcod%20meets%20a%20female-XL.jpg https://photos.smugmug...
