We went up the gunsight to the Cigar Rock and then drifted a bit South and ended up at the split coral head.
On the way to the Coral Head and just a bit East of the Cigar Rock, I found an Octopus. It was secure in a hole and only the eye was peeking out. I tried to play with it by wiggling my fingers. When I got my hand close to it, it shot water at me from its siphon. Scared me and I jumped back. When I calmed down, I continued East to the Fish Camp Rocks, then went North to the Big Coral Knoll.
On the Knoll, I spotted a Juvenile Yellow Tunkfish. As I was approaching it for a picture, a Damselfish chased it off. I followed it to another coral head in which it hid. I got some pictures, but not really good ones, just as good as I could get. I backed off, hoping he would come out, but he stayed put.
While I was waiting on the Juvenile Yellow Trunkfish, though, I spotted a Juvenile Smooth Trunkfish just 3 yards to the North. I swam over then behind the little white spotted black tennis ball until it settled down and I got some pictures of it.
We were both getting low on air, so we headed back. We went to the Perpendicular Rocks, then headed SW to the beach. Along the way I found a Doctorfish with a Cymothoid Isopod attached to it just below and behind the mouth.
We surfaced in a rain storm. The sky was completely overcast. We decided to skip the second dive. I was cold and unlikely to warm up in the rain. So we cleaned up and I drove home. By the time I unloaded the truck, however, it was sunny outside.
