On the Beach

Had a chance to go snorkeling on the ocean for a few hours. It was really a rocky area but the water wasn’t too bad - once you got used to it. There were a lot of neons in large schools and quite a few other fish I didn’t recognize. Saw some various slug type animals on the bottom and a lot of sea urchins camouflaging themselves with broken bits of shells. Must be some kind of otter in the area that makes a feast of them but we didn’t see any evidence of mammals in the area. The seabed itself was rather dull and dusty. Even swimming right along the rocks didn’t produce other animals. Sad because I bet the lack of life there is a result of people…
