Deco Profile:
We headed mostly north from the anchor line, hopping from rock to rock. There were some nice clusters of metridiums on several of the rocks. Saw a single Dialula sandiegensis and an unusually large decorator crab (not sure if it was still alive). When we turned around I steered us too far to the right and we ended up swimming for a while across a flat sand bottom until we finally stumbled over another set of rocks with a few strands of giant kelp. Since we missed the anchor line we sent up a marker buoy and ascended under that. Gary tried carrying an 80ft^3 stage of bottom gas for the first time and breathed off that for the second half of the dive.
