Deco Profile:
On Friday I was able to take Gary for a Lobos tour. That's not very easy to do as he knows the area very well
but after getting his T1 rating there was new territory for him to cover. We meet at the parking lot at 9:00am as I had a phone meeting at 12pm, and we quickly gear up and went diving.

The visibility at the cove was not the best but the moment we got to HTW vis opened to about 60ft and we had at least 100ft in the Twin Peaks area. We saw dozens of large lincods. They came in different colors: black, brown and grey. We found a nice basket start and several others nudibranches hanging on the gorgonias.

On the way back we hanged around rock-garden for a large portion of the deco, and we saw a large school of blues and a nice Mola.

Good to be able to take Gary on some new territories ;-), and I was only 10min late to my phone call :-)
