After the BAUE tech charter was cancelled due to a high wind forecast I was able to score a Point Lobos reservation and joined up with Gary and Jon. Visibility was decent inside Whaler's Cove but out deeper the water was full of large particles; scootering was like driving through a blizzard and we nearly ran into the rocks a few times. After a bit of searching Gary was able to find the road and took us out to Twin Peaks. There were still a lot of Triopha catalinae around, and we also spotted quite a few Dirona albolineata. My primary light failed right when we reached the main Twin Peaks structure; it seems like the battery pack has a bad cell or broken connection.

Here is a gallery album with a few pictures.
