If one has a scooter, going out to Northwest Island is a fantastic dive. Great wall there, covered in life. About 8 minutes on a Sierra.

Glad you enjoyed it.

I hit keystone today and saw the largest sea star i have born eyes on. The legs were a hand length and the body a hand and a half. So were talking abut 24 inches across!
