My first dive after a 110 day hiatus. Lobos delivered. A mildly agitated wintry surface spewed foam inside the cove. This but an easily overlooked distraction, what with the lot overflowing with familiar faces (great to see everyone!), sparkling sunshine above, and not at all unspectacularly clear water below. Greg at the compass, the team meandered slowly out to Betoís. Lings, blues, sea lions, seals. Beto the Wolf Eel. Usual stuff, I suppose, albeit sliced up pretty special with penetrating rays of sunshine. Nothing usual about it for me, though, as it had been way too long since Iíd seen it all. Was Caribbean-like inside the Cove. Spent 25 minutes exploring the typically blacked out reef parallel to the lot. Largest Cab Iíve ever seen might have been as surprised to be able to see us as we were to see him. Perfect day at Lobos.
