Inspired by high-amp-hour, trigger-heavy, heated-vest-happy Team Gavin gearing up slowly in the lot, and also by the fantastic conditions of late, Greg and I endeavored a scooter worthy kick dive. First stop was Gary’s Rock Garden. A long overhead carpet of young blues ushered us through “the doors.” Inside, the blues carpet kept unfolding just below the kelp covered surface. Looking up, the kelp was translucent against bright sunshine and the blues took on a shimmering glow. Dramatic sun-shade contrasts generated a spectacular kaleidoscope of colors on the magnificent maze of reefs. In spots it was raining YOY.

Our extended range mission plucked us from the Garden and we kicked our way back towards the Cove. Once Lone Metridium’s white Q-tip emerged we headed north to Sea Mount, where we encountered Lings dead and alive. From the northern edge of Sea Mount Beto’s was in sight and beckoning, so off we kicked. We rode high along the ledge and took in the stunning panoramic view. Upon reaching the end of the second segment of the reef chain we turned back. Bouncing off Sea Mount we headed over the two tires and straight into the bright and blue Sand Channel. Bag shoot at the Worm Patch and valve drill off the ramp wrapped up a perfect dive.
