   Monterey, CA / Shale Island

max. depth: 17.2 m
dive time: 52 min

notes:

Surprisingly nice dive. First time out on the shale beds. Lots of corynactus, lemon and white nudibranchs. Lots of color on a low shelf. Navy anchor w/chain. Clown nudibranch, 2 shark/skate egg sacs.
Nice, mellow dive after a long break.
Plenty of air and bottom time left; got cold.

Blew off second dive and went whale watching. Mom and calf breacing, nearly out of the water. Got close enough to hear them breathe. Very cool. Overcast, but welcome flat seas.
