This past 11/5/2012 weekend at Laguna Beach dive conditions were extremely amazing. Underwater visibility was at least 20ft with water temp about 65 degrees. That’s pretty darn good for November. There were plenty of ocean creatures out and about ranging from huge lobsters, abalone, garibaldi, sheepheads, horn sharks, leopard, sharks, bat rays, seals, sea urchins, and so on. The abundance is all thanks to No Fishing Zone set in place this year by state regulations.
Weekend spend in Catalina Island, California with my diving buddies was an amazing experience. Within 2 short days, I dove 7 dives at the Avalon dive park. This was pretty good for a cost of $300 including hotel, food, drinks, and the Catalina Express.
With all the rain this year, expect some early and an abundance in desert flowers to start blooming all over California. I am currently monitoring the daily reports of Anza Borrego’s desert flower blooming meter.
Once the time nears the full bloom, I plan on doing a desert trip out there to capture the moments, do a little off road to Font’s Point, Inspiration Point, the slot canyons, can wind caves.
