I came back from 9 days diving caves in Mx. The color spectrum is on the white/black range with very nice caves but not many creatures or colors.

On Tuesday afternoon I got an email from JimC suggesting a diving outing before the storm gets here. All my gear was full of mud so it was a good excuse to get the gear wet and then rise is properly.

Joakin, Jim, Sue and myself did a nice and relaxing dive at Cypress Canyon. The moment we hit the reef I was very happy to see our ecosystem once again. There are so many colors that it's difficult to take, specially after diving caves for a while.

Sue said I was like a little kid pointing to all the cool things we saw. My favorite was a red gorgonia which a bunch of hermit crabs on it.

We did a nice two steps multi-level, with 20min at
~170 and 15min at 130. Towards the end of the dive
Susan took us to a nice area with tons of hydrocoral and some very nice decorate crabs.

Vis was a milky 70ft, and it was nice and warm 53 :-)
