Howdy ScubaJess and I and several others met up over the weekend to do some diving at Keystone!!
Viz was a milky 15 feet. A few highlights: + Meeting and catching up with many amazing divers! + Watching the male kelp greenlings guard their eggs + Witnessing a kelp greenling egg hatch + Plenty of 3 lined nudis in the current swept areas + I got to watch a 3 lined nudi climb a PMH, however I hit deco before it made it to the top :( + Finding a snakelock anemone on the line... first one I've ever seen/heard about at keystone + Finding some impossibly small to photograph dotos in the raging current on the pilings
In lesser abundance as of late: + It looked liked there were less Lobed Ascidians? :( + As observed on most of my recent dives here in the last 6 months... WAY less rockfish :(
Here were a few of the snaps
Hope you all had a great weekend!
