Went to Van Damme as everything else was blown out or didn't look too clear. Did a 2 tank dive - dove left side of parking lot and was very shallow. There was a good reef, though, with lots to look at. We saw a big sea cucumber, nudibranch as well as the usual suspects and grabbed a few crabs. Tried to go towards the center of beach but not much there. The right side (north) looked good though although a far swim. Easy entry/exit even when everything else was windy.
