Good morning Divers!!!

Max Depth: 50ft
Dive Duration: 48
Dive watch lost 10 minutes during the dive.
Temp: 60 degrees f
Visibility: 35 feet
Conditions: Salt water, shore dive, low tide moving to high, south waves.
Equipment: Custom wet suit, watch, steel tank, Hollis back plate BCD, Sony Action Camera (got flooded).
Dive Buddies: Paul, Frank. Total of 15.

We had a rain advisory and as predicted, it was lifted when we hit the water. We had two new people join us and had a total of 15 people join us. The kelp was
extra thick on the surface. Rich had half of the group on one side of the kelp and I had the other half. We each descended and both of the two groups didn't
drop down in the proper place.

Rich ended up near Seal Rock and I ended up near the pinnacles. I found a large sheep head crab and took some video of that. We headed east and thought I
was at Deadman's but it didn't seem quite right. I noticed a lot fish in a school swimming around. The fish were big but they were at the edge of our visibility
which was near 30 feet.

When we headed back we started from the pinnacles and I knew that I had to head east. We swam along the inner reef and continued heading in. When we
reached 5 feet we surfaced and found Rich and the rest of the group.

We went over to Husky Boy's for food and conversation. The conditions were excellent with visibility close to 30 feet. My watch malfunctioned during the dive. I
lost 10 minutes. My little Sony Action Cam got flooded.
