My wife and I finally made it down to Redondo today and went looking for the pink tritonia nudis. We found one that was just south of the vw bug -- it looked like a huge pink loaf of bread. North of the bug and rock wall were tons of striped nudibranchs. We also saw the cutest octopus hiding in the metal ladder on the north side of the big pipe and a seal did a fly-by as we were doing our safety stop. A+ dives today.

I'm hoping to be able to make it down to the ThThTh dive next week.

Thanks Tom!
Those were lovely to see!
Hope you get more back into the water soon!

And... the jellies are coming, the jellies are coming! A lot of juvi jellies were seen yesterday.

Thanks for the Tips Tom, we found them! :)
It was a super fun dive, great vis and lots of critters out and about. I got to hang out with a little red octo for a while, he was adorable. Also those Pink Tritonia's were huge!! I found one with eggs. :)
Hopefully we can see you at at ThThTh soon!
Live Long And Prosper!!!

Just out of curiosity, I know where the bug is, but I am not sure what you a referring to with the "rock wall".

Just north and west of the bug there are rocks piled in a semicircle, 20ish feet long or so. It's really not a "wall" per se, but that's what we call it since it basically sits on a large sand flat like everything else in that area of Redondo.

I would love to join you guys tonight, but unfortunately my wife and I are not free to dive until Sunday. One of these Thursdays I will make it.

I'm out. My right ear was killing me last night and this morning. I need to be smart and not push it.

Howdy Divers!

Who's up for ThThTh 4/4?

Redondo 6:30pm meet

Lots of stubbies and penpoint gunnel have been seen lately. Some white tip nudies, grunts, even a few remaining lumpies...
