Lobos was nice and sunny when Dionna and I showed up at 9am. It was certainly a BAUE day with lots of people showing up to do a Nudibranch count with Clinton. We were hoping for some great vis and were not disappointed. After dropping just before the cove exit we scootered out to hole in the wall. Vis was very good at about 50' or so and continued to get better. Still lots of kelp around with many smaller strands which looked like cave line going up. Continuing on we zoomed by Beto's reef and passed the deeper Sister. We could see two structures that looked like twin peaks but I guess were not. John called them 'twin cheeks', seems appropriate. At this point we were only 14 mins into the dive, wow! lots of time left. At this point I when I looked up I could see the surface at over 100'. We turned around, headed back and navigated over to the middle reef. Saw Clinton and gang counting Nudibranch's then surfaced back at the boat ramp. What a great dive, the scooter performed great and I am just starting to get comfortable with the positioning so the dive was very relaxing.
