The land of the pricklebacks

Post by gutholmj » Sat Jun 16, 2012 6:51 pm

I think I might sound like I'm giving a confessional but, I haven's been diving in at least 4 months. As a last minute thing I decided I really needed to go out for a dive so I headed up to Steilacoom. Despite being the closest dive site to home, I've only been to twice out of my 300 and whatever dives in Puget Sound. It was a pretty enjoyable and uneventful dive. Pretty much like I remembered Steilacoom but the one cool thing was that there were hundred and hundreds of Snake Pricklebacks. In some spots there were a dozen to the square yard. It's been so long I could barely remember how to operate the camera but I did manage to take a few photos.

Nice shot on the prickleback those buggers are tough to get a shot of.
