Our local waters are now sub 70 degrees. Without a decent wet suit, one will be chattering in the surf within 20 minutes. My feet froze this weekend but for three blue tangs, it was worth it. Windy conditions don't help when exiting from the shallows....grrrrr. While it rained, the sea surface gained a degree or two...how nice! But I do plan to go over one more time for the year to get another ocean surgeon and/or a doctorfish. The coral banded shrimps can be obtained via tide pooling, no problem there. Please, may summer return swiftly!
