January 28th – February 3rd
Had some great water time last week! Went in search of a squid run Tuesday night… We found a whopping 3 squid. 😀 However I love night dives regardless so I can hide my jealousy of the squid run that Redondo Beach has been getting. At least a little bit. 😀 The dive was still full of life!
Yes, I was also one of the crazies who was up at the crack of dawn for the super blue blood moon 😀 As tired as I was, I have to say it was well worth it!! And now I want a longer lens… #alwaysneedmorecameragear
Got an early morning snorkel/freedive sesh in on Thursday and Friday. Found two turtles in the Marine Room and some very active sea lions at the cove!
And finally, on Saturday, I went out on House of Scuba‘s trip on the Waterhorse to the Coronado Islands! I know, I know, like I really needed more pinniped time. But the answer to that is YES. Yes, I always need more water time with those cute whiskered faces! Haha! So for those of you that don’t know, the Coronado Islands are a group of 4 islands off the coast of Baja California. It’s about an hour and half boat ride and about 15 miles south of San Diego. It has awesome rocky topography and beautiful colors. Unfortunately some spots are pretty taken over by the invasive sargassum, but the sea lion colony is always such a treat! Its interesting to experience the two different colonies. You can tell the San Diego sea lions seem way more used to humans. While they are still active and playful, they do grow bored of you eventually and move on. In the Coronado Islands, I found the pups were way more inquisitive. They would dive bomb us constantly, and seek us out. I had numerous pups just sit and admire their reflection in the dome off my camera. Or maybe the Coronado pups are just vain. 😀
