TTN 7 - 10. Dive 1, very low tide, ripping current, kelp all over everything, schmutz flying, 20'ish viz. Dive 2, high slack, lots of whale snot in the water, 30' viz, very nice. Hopefully we will get some of our really good Summer viz soon!

Redondo 7-9. Super low tide, fairly good sized exchange, mini Redondo river, 10' initially then opened to a nice 20' as we went north. South side was terrible 3' to 8' or so.

Keystone on Saturday, 7-7-18. A dirty 10 ft along the jetty and pilings. There were a few spots in the shallows in-between where it was a sunny 15' in the kelp. Really pleasant. Also, the missing Lings may be returning :norris: :supz:
