On Sunday Dionna and I came down to Lobos to dive Twin Peaks on our scooters. The condition report didn't look too bad so I was hoping, as always, for great vis. The tide was high at the boat ramp which is always nice for getting in. Once in the water the vis in the cove looked good, about 10 feet or so. Once we descended at the worm patch and got past 100' the vis opened up big time. Woooohooo! Finally, scootering with great vis ! It was so easy to see the sisters, then to the end of Beto's reef, over to the left side then following the ridge all the way up to Twin Peaks. Zooming around the end of TP we turned back passing some Sea Pens on the ground. It was so serene I could of stayed hours playing around out there. As my light flashed past the red and orange sponges, schools of yellow rockfish, and all sizes of yellow dorids, I was regretting that time had passed so quickly. We dodged large bushes of kelp while making our way in, and finally back at the worm patch again we settled in for our final deco stops. A quick check of the temp confirmed that it was a pretty cold 45 degrees. After our deco we surfaced and scootered back to a nice lunch with Suzanne and Gary, unfortunately not in the sun.
