Scootered to Twin Peaks. Vis was already 30'+ in Whaler's but opened up to 80'+ at depth - as clear as I've ever seen it at Lobos, and enough to allow us to scooter 30' above the bottom and see everything from the sand to the top of the Twin Peaks pinnacles with crystalline clarity. My thought as I stopped my scooter to admire the elephant ear sponges, corynactis, and gorgonians was that my trip to Kona next month is going to have nothing to offer except warmer water (the water was also as cold as I've ever felt it at Lobos). On the way back, Joe T., Delia, and Gideon Liew (GUE instructor visiting from Singapore), whom we had met in the parking lot, scootered past us and gave us a barrel-roll salute. We all got out and agreed that we are very, very lucky to be able to dive in such an amazing place.
