Dive #511 - Cottam Point

Started off with some nice jellies in the shallows, and found the massive pink sea star again. Urchins with hats, and one standing on its side. A few Batwing sea slugs. Octo mom with eggs, and a couple other GPOs. Sea stars in weird positions. Brown rockfish, which I don't remember seeing here before.
