I was suppose to teach a Fundamental class Frid,Sat, and Sunday but due to a reduction in class size, I was able to get Sunday free :-). What a better way to spend that extra day than diving on the Escapade. Jim said he also had a last minute cancellation on his morning charter, so Jim, Joe, Sue and myself decided to do a quick dive before his afternoon trip.

Conditions were good for a BigSur trip marathon however, we had to be back by 1:30pm so we reduced our expectation and headed out to Ed Cooper's Wall. This is a great dive site with a very long wall running South East, and it has great terrain and marine life. We saw tons of lincods, and large school of blue rock fish, as well as some health hydrocorals on the cracks. We could not find the resident wolf eels, neither the shallowest peak, but everybody had a great time.

Visibility was about 50ft, but a little milky. There were some nice brown jellies during deco, and grey whales on the way back home.

Loved to put a free day to good use :-)
