Met up with Santiago at 7:30 am. We looked at the conditions which were fine. Suited up and headed down the stairs, in the water and descending at the end of the exposed reef west end of Crescent by 8:08 am. Santiago was the designated leader with his compass in hand we arrived at Deadmans reef by 8:30 or so.

On the way I noticed many anemones of varying sizes and colors of green. Purple urchins, and three or four small Greenlings. Once at the reef we had about 10 min. to explore. Saw the pinicle covered with Corynactis -- club tipped anemone of varying colors. There were lots of cracks and holes to peek in. I am looking forward to diving this site off of a boat. More time at the site.

We kicked back again underwater without problems. ie. Santiago got us right back to the sand out of Crescent without hitch. Way to go

I like the picture of the anemone, very intrinsic, makes me want to reach out and touch one of the tendrils
