Deco Profile:

Decided to take advantage of the wonderful dive conditions and needed a mental health day. Doc Wong and I met down at Pt Lobos for some fun on the scooters. Pt Lobos looked like a lake when we arrived. The tides were perfect to haul gear in and out of the water. We discussed our dive plan, went over the GUE EDGE. We scootered on the surface for a bit than dropped down to about 30feet of water and off we went. The plan was to explore the area a little north west of the Sisters. The visibility was about 50-60feet. The terrain was wonderful. I was sooo stoked about this dive. Saw some of our local rockfish, vermilions, and a few elephant ear sponges as we cruised by the various reefs. I navigated back to Beto”¦s Reef at 30 minutes into our dive. We hung out there until it was time to ascend to 70ft for our gas switch. We did this near Sea Mount. Doc Wong wanted to practice a blue water ascent with the scooter, I thought okay, with all the Tech 2 practicing I have been doing, I should be okay. ;-) ”K”K Sure enough on the 70ft deco stop Doc pulls out his wetnotes to play a little tic tac toe”K. I was keeping track of deco time, location and of course depth while playing tic tac toe”K.. I thought for sure he would win”K. It was a DRAW!!! We drifted very slightly east. At around 40-30feet there were birds diving down next to us. Other than that, deco was uneventful. We surfaced, and scootered to the ramp. Didn”¦t see our Monkey Face Eel friend for his feeding. ƒ¼. I hope no one scared him away. Got out quickly and had to go back to work”K. Back tomorrow for some practicing.
