Palos Verdes forecast called for temperature around 87 degrees - light winds from NNW and swells from the West. So I decided to hit White Point. I called it correctly... water was around 70 degrees - no breakers and the tide was out around 1:30pm. I walked as far south as I could and decided to enter the water. Visibility was great, 20 foot within 50 yards of shore. As I kicked out farther, visibility dropped to 10 ft. Saw my first octopus !!!
