Malaga Cove on the Palos Verdes Peninsula is a gorgeous spot for beach diving and snorkeling. Kelp forests are home to Garibaldi and other fish. The ocean floor varies between rock reefs and swathes sand. You can see leopard sharks, horn sharks, and more. Go on a day with a southerly or no swell for the best visibility.

The twisted stitch and lace pattern reminds me of the pattern of waves reflected on the sandy ocean floor on a sunny day.
