San Carlos Beach in Monterey, California. Harbor seals. Stung in face by sea nettles. Dive buddy got a bit panicky, and understandably so. Instructors should never leave students alone in open water, especially not in two-meter viz surrounded by kelp. Dive two of two for drysuit certification. Three parts. 24F 4M / 26F 2M / 14F 4M. 24F. 12M. 29632.
