Solo Dive on the Big Coral Knoll

I got to the beach at 9:00 am and got in the water by 9:20 am.  I swam out and descended on the concrete blocks at 9:34 am.  There was a mild current, but difficult to adjust for it.  Went up the gun sight to the Cigar Rock to the Gray Mid-way Rock and then North to the Perpendicular Rocks, the Swept Rock and the Knoll.  Drifted over the Knoll with the current, got some good pictures though nothing unusual on the Knoll, and then I swam around to do it again.

Got this shot of a Christmas Tree Worm,

this shot of a White Grunt,

this shot of a Redband Parrotfish

this shot of a Spanish Grunt,

 this shot of a Giant Anemone and a tiny Squat Anemone Shrimp, which is the white and green thing sticking up at the bottom and sort of to the right of the Giant anemone.

This shot of a Fingerprint Cyphoma.

 Headed back at 1200 psi and got to the blocks at 700 psi.  Stayed there until I hit 120 minutes, then headed in to the beach slowly.  Sucked the tank dry, but got 135 minutes total dive time.
