I came out here to check out my leaking dry suit after a repair. The parking was good and I got geared up in short order. Because of the houses around and lack of changing area, I wore Adidas shorts to avoid giving the local home owners a show. The shoreline was good soft coarse sand with many large logs on it, but it was easy enough to get to the water 50 feet away. I swam out along the bottom which was sandy and slowly the depth increased. At 12 to 15 feet the sand changed to silt and the crabs appeared along with thousands of empty clam shells. Some of the dungenous crabs were fairly large. The highlight of the dive was a visit by a large Harbour Seal who got within 10 feet of me to check me out. It was white with gray spots. So cool...
