Black Rockfish
Four SeaHorses met to dive this beautiful evening at Cove 2. Brian Lund, Randy Pedersen, Pieter Bootha nd Ed Gullekson we there to see the setting sun light up the city as the moon rose to decorate the sky. What a gorgeous sight.  It was still quite light on the first dive and vis was an easy 20 feet. Water has cooled to about 46. We found rockfish, ligcod, white spotted greenling and horned shrimp and one small octopus on the first dive.

For the second one we saw much of that again plus a stubby squid, Pieter saw an opalescent squid, grunt sculpin, juvenile decorated warbonnet and numerous kinds of shrimp. Vis dropped a bit due to two seals. A school of anchovy hovered in the shallows.
