Susan and I took our lunch brake at Point Lobos. We were hoping for 100ft vis and calm seas. We go half of that. It was really calm but vis was about 10-5ft on the sand channel at about 3ft at the L. Metridium and it was worse the deeper we go.

We adapted our Twin Peaks dive plan and spent 60min looking inside cracks for small stuff from L. Metridium to the worm patch.
We found a very large wolf eel (6-8ft long) swimming around the kelp. This is the largest we have ever seen. We also saw two nice kelp gunnels, near the hole in the wall.

Not bad for a lunch break :-), I hope vis get better soon.
