Met up with Doc Wong and Ben Villao for a fun dive at Lobos. When we arrived the ramp looked a bit sporty. Water was sloshing up to the parking lot. There were a few divers in the parking lot suiting up. Doc wanted to get in soon. Ben and I decided to wait and help some of the divers that were suiting up get in. Ben is a true public helper!! After talking to several people we discussed our dive plans. We timed our entry carefully and off we went. Water movement was strong and stirred up. While underwater we discussed some navigations and eventually found our way to Granite Point Wall. We scootered around and ended up on the West side of the wall. I did a species count while the guys kept a careful eye out for me. After about 45 minutes, we decided to head back in. Exiting was a team effort. Fun dive and extra special getting Doc Wong out in the water, seeing Ben Villao, and getting harassed by both of them.

Here is my data from todays survey.
