Blue Shark

During the second dive of three at Catalina on Friday October 9, 2009 the four of us were treated to a real surprise. We were at Old Quarry, my son Andrew had spotted the Scythe Butterfly fish, I followed and filmed a Round Ray and just as we met back up with Ruth and Laura I saw a Blue Shark. I have only seen one other and that was looooong ago like 35 years or so. This one was at least five feet long, turned about a few times, which was very helpful as it took me what seemed like hours to get the point across to my buddies that there was a cool Shark just behind them!!! I nearly gave myself a concussion banging the side of my hand against my forehead, the sign for shark underwater. Luckily my brain finally caught up with my body and I managed to get about 8 seconds of video but my BBF Ruth's reaction after is priceless!!!
