Deco Profile:
Back on the boat and the sun was shining, gear off, and we were all hungry. Especially Susan who had a crazed look and was mumbling about sandwiches the whole way to the next dive site. As the boat was bouncing over the waves I heard a sound like a bottle hitting another one. As I looked back I could see someoneís argon bottle balanced precariously on the step, ready to drop into the depths below. Mark Weitz jumped into action and grabbed it before it left the boat. Nick thanked him for his quick reaction and apparently some whispering about giving up his first born was heard. Once we arrived at East Pinnacles, the wonderful sandwiches were released and the hordes decended on them. Halloween cupcakes made an entrance, scary ! And that completed our lunch.

Another quick briefing by Jim and we were down again. The visibility seemed even better at this site. Again nice formations of large rocks and kelp floating up. Seems many of us were diving around the same areas and as we past Susan she pointed out a Wolf Eel peeking out from the rocks. After a few more rounds we headed back in the direction of the boat and past a huge rock that was covered in multi colored coral, fantastic! I wish I had my camera down for that one but Iím sure Clinton has some nice footage.

It seemed so short but up the anchor rope we went doing our minimum deco with very little current to bother us. Back on the boat with a dive time of 52 mins at 83 feet. Nice dive!
