Reading Gary's email on Saturday, I saw that conditions were very good at Lobos. Cursing my luck at not planning to dive this weekend I assumed the conditions would continue to be poor. Just then I saw another email from Grey Nyce giving up his Lobos spot! I immediately snagged it... thanks Greg ... and proceeded to round up my dive buddy, Dionna. Since Dionna and I both had parties the night before, we met at a leisurely time, 9am. With scooters and cameras we made our way to the worm patch, out to hole in the wall, round to Beto's, then over to the end of Middle Reef, over to Granite Point wall and back. Vis was pretty good at about 50' and the usual barnacle covered reefs were visible.

A few pictures can be seen here:

This was a dual purpose dive. First to try and get some additional photos and videos for the BAUE project, and to capture additional images of the barnacle invasion. After 70 mins of zooming around Lobos we exited the water, chowed down on lunch, entertained a few tourists, educated a few divers, then went back in to see if Dionna still had some bottle juggling skills left. Apparently she does and 30 mins later we were out washing down the gear. No sun appeared but it was a nice day of diving all around.
