*Average:    4.05
Day after Thanksgiving- air temp: 40, water temp: 50! No surf, little wind. Great off season parking at head of the ramp. Relatively shallow dive (30 feet), but with 15-20 ft viz, lots of interesting nooks and crannies in the rocks, with sponges and various sea-weeds. We saw crabs and a school of young cod, but the only lobster was already in a trap. Swam out on a course of 060M and returned on the reciprocal. An ebbing tide and resultant current made the surface swim back seem a bit long but the dive was worth the effort.
