It wasn't a good day to go wide-angle, but I had hopes of seeing some more jellyfish. I haven't seen a fried egg yet, mostly because I haven't been diving LJS. Needless to say, we didn't see any. Not because they weren't there, but because we couldn't see them in the pea soup above 65 ft. It was a nice long, relaxing dive and it was good to see Mike H., Spencer, Bill, Terry, Kim and Newell.
