Deco Profile:
Beautiful day at Pt. Lobos. Anibal and I scootered to Twin Peaks. Vis was already 30' or so in Whaler's and opened up to more than 80' as we started to reach deep water. Although I knew this dive well from swimming it and scootering a number of times, I hadn't been in several months so was planning to go slowly and turn around if the route seemed unclear. In fact, navigation was made very easy since we could so clearly see the route and the pinnacles ahead of us at each stage of the dive. My thought on reaching the peaks was that my trip to the Big Island next month is going to seem boring by comparison. On the ride back we encountered Joe T., Delia, and Gideon Liew, a GUE instructor from Singapore, who gave us a fly by wave. Gideon's comment after the dive was that he was amazed that NoCal diving was so much better than SoCal!
