Well, we went and dove in Otters Cove yesterday. Map to Location.

Otter cove is just north of Lovers Point and about a mile from the house. It’s a good place to see, wait for it, yep, otters. (-: We did see one when we were getting ready to head down into the water. He was beating on something he had on his belly. They like to hang out on the edges of the kelp. Here is a link to the Monterey Bay Aquariums Otter Cam.

We did two dives there. The water was very brown/green at the uppper levels. We’re having an algae bloom that’s just terrible. I hear it’s pretty common for around here. However, once we got below about 20ft it cleared up some and we had a pretty good time.

We also had a seal checking us out again. Startled me the first time I saw it. I was surface swimming out on my back and when I rolled over and stuck my head in the water there was this big blurred white thing about 7 ft below me. Took a second to realize that it was a seal. (-:
Kirk took the camera with us so hopefully I will be able to include some pictures soon.
