Dive #469 - Madrona Small Wall - 3 March 2021

A super long, fun dive with Jill tonight on the Small Wall. We were looking for barnacle nudi eggs, having found the nudis themselves a few weeks ago here. No eggs spotted, but we did see lots of other great critters: too many little stubby squid and red octos to count out in the sand, once we were around the rock and on the sand flats. 3 Cockerell's dorids, all on the same rock. Grunt sculpin with eggs. Lots of crabs with eggs (helmet and red rocks). A mosshead warbonnet with great hair. A small GPO on the wall, and the usual orange wolf eel (although s/he was shy tonight).
