I met up with Ian Puleston for a dive at Pt Lobos. Thanks to Suzanne for giving us her reservation. Due to her car break down, she was not able to attend. Ian I planned to go out to Beto's Reef and visit all the Sisters. We surfaced kicked past Hole in the Wall. I was leading and thought I would try to hit Sea Mount by going slightly NW. I ended up at the Lone Metridium... All good.. the visibility was good enough to take a North Heading and go out to Beto's Reef. We swam and found the Beto's Reef. I have been wanting to swim around that area to get to know it better. Lots and Lots of little strands of kelp to avoid getting tangled in. I probably gave some kelp stalks a haircut. ;-). After a short visit to Beto's Reef, we went West to the Sisters. We visited all of them. At the deeper Sisters we were mostly on top of the pinnacles. Ian spotted an unusual jelly. Comb shaped with 4 orange colored tentacles. Back to the Lone Metridium for a gas switch and a nice gentle swim into the cove. I was able to watch a rockfish attack little juvenile rockfish (tough world they live in), also saw an anemome eating a moon jelly, lots of little krill in the shallows. The vis took a big decline to about 3ft and we surfaced right near the parking lot.
We decided to sit out the second dive... too much kicking!!!
