Alki Junkyard Saturday Jan 18

Post by YellowEye » Sun Jan 19, 2020 4:55 pm

Hi! A bunch of folks went diving Saturday Jan 18 at Alki Junkyard. We ended up hijacking scubie doo's awesome critter question at www.nwdiveclub.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=27934 with a trip report. So moving the trip report part of the convo here... :joshsmith: :calvin:

Jess and I went back today (my back was good!!). I found this SUPER TINY critter at about 70'. It looks sort of like a baby kelp isopod but I was surprised to find it in that habitat. So much cool stuff to find at that site. Somebody even found a lumpy there today.

Nice pics! Been trying to find a sea spider for months with no luck. Gdog, I would adjust your white balance and saturation a little bit to make the blue in the BRO pop more.
