If you could go snorkeling with anyone in the world, you should go snorkeling with Mr. Lawrence. There aren't many people out there with a combined knowledge of undersea life, courage to dive down and find it, and ability to actually catch it. On a one-hour snorkeling trip this past weekend, Mr. Lawrence found a sea urchin, several endangered abilones, and caught a lobster and a shark (again!). We also saw wrasses, leopard sharks, and garibaldis, the state fish of California. Quite an adventure!
