Steph and I joined two others, Madz and Ahmad, at Lover’s Point for a nice dive through some of the little remaining kelp forest along Monterey. They showed up late and took a while to get ready, but I was prepared for that, so it wasn’t too bad. I had a great dive. We saw otters and harbor seals as we were setting up our gear, although we didn’t see them underwater. During the dive we saw a ton of sea lemons, some massive sea stars, lots of types of crabs, and some urchin barrens surrounding the kelp. I think the otters must have been keeping the kelp area clear, because there were no urchins in the kelp area.
