Report 3 Tree Pt

We arrived at 3 Tree yesterday to discover that a big truck was drilling homes in the parking lot.  It made the already premium parking more challenging.  The 4 of us, Russ, Pieter, Dave and Ed did find spots to park.  Pieter and Russ teamed up to get Russ a "shakedown" dive after 5 dry years.  Dave and Ed teamed up to visit the junkyard.  After some trials and tribulations Russ got most of his gear working, but had a short dive due to lack of weight.  Ed and Dave swam against the slight current to the junkyard.  We missed the boat and much of the yard as the vis was up to 10 feet, at least double the week before at Redondo.  We did find the keg, just a rockfish inside, and some other junk articles.  Small fish, flatfish and hermit crabs were easy to find.  Water temp has warmed to about 49.  Dave and Ed rode the current back to the exit.  On the way we found a bunch of bowling balls that someone has assembled into a reef.  It has not been there long as it is still clean.
