Another Backscatter Monterey Shootout Monterey Shootout in the books. Everyone else is so much quicker than I am to get their images and FB posts up. It was a fun shootout, like past years, full of friendly faces and of course, it’s always great to get out diving. Monterey is something else, I just wish it were a few hours closer :)

8 dives over 3 days, 6 for the shootout, and 2 of those were a first for me diving the beautiful (and long surface swim) Point Lobos!

An exploratory bonfire dive also turned up some really amazing little squishies! For the better part of my dive, I sat in the sand watching a cloud of little critters drift through my light, with the cutest cloud of baby squid (or octos!?) you could ever ask for!
