On Friday I went for a dive with Dionna. We got to Point Lobos to find relative large swells at the cove and vis didn't really look the best. However, I had a repaired drysuit to test so we decided to give it a try.

On the way to Hole on the wall we found a nice school of tube-snouts, and two very friendly harbour seals. They followed all the way to three sisters. Really cute. The came very close and play with us for long time.

We continued on The Road reef towards Twin Peaks. Vis was 10-15 but it was very dark and there was tons of sand in suspension. We saw some nice decorates crabs, a nice tritona festiva and a nice dinora albolineata.

On the way back Dionna let us back to the worm path, and we decided to ascend there and do our deco with better vis.

I was not sure if my suit was still leaking, as the water was very cold. We had 48 for most of the bottom part, and 50 from 70 and up. I think it's fixed. I just got my thermostat at little bit of after Aruba's 80F.

Nice lunch from La Tortuga :-)
