I used the black tank, which had only 2100 psi in it after being filled only 2 days ago. Must be a bad valve. Anyway, I decided to dive it because the surf was up, seas were choppy and visibility was none too good. Wore my D6, because I forgot the D6i at home. Wouldn't have been too bad except that the D6 did not record this dive for some unknown reason. I used the guage on the tank before and after the dive and I was following closely, so the other numbers are pretty accurate. I swam out to the Swim Buoy line and descended. Found the Sea Rod, but it has taken a beating.
I found a bandtail puffer and was taking its picture when I noticed a second puffer lying in the sand. At first I thought the second puffer was injured, but apparently no as it swam away once I started taking pictures.
I found a Smooth Trunkfish and was concentrating on some shots.
A Triggerfish took advantage of the situation and bit me, not once, but twice.
Pretty much wherever I looked, I found these perfectly round holes that looked like they were drilled recently. I found these odd looking creatures, which I think are some kind of amphipod.
Tried to get a head on shot of this Yellow Sand Ray swimming along the bottom, but he turned away as I was shooting.
Found this Seaweed Blenny near the concrete blocks.
I spent the entire dive checking out the Nursery that existed in the Summer of 2012, all 70 minutes of it. Not much left after Sandy. I was cold by the end of the dive, but the computer said the water temperature was 77 degrees. I think the computer lies.
