How I felt

How D'Or felt

How B felt
Needed an extra day to figure out something I should have already been good at. Fantastic T1 planning and preparation on my part.
The Breakwater sucks, didn't even get good parking. Ignored B and D'Or's advice to not try and lug my doubles and stage from the beach to the upper parking lot but did I listen? Nope.

Don't be like me; be better than me.

.SAT...NW winds 20 to 30 kt with gusts up to 40 kt. Wind waves
11 to 13 ft. NW swell 5 to 7 ft at 16 seconds. 

We still thought it might be worth the drive down ...
Big ol' nope.

Marco's Pinnacle


Finally had some great visibility at Pt Lobos - the water felt a lot colder than it was but we could easily see 40-50ft out. Perfect conditions for D'Or and I to try for the 4th (5th?) time to get to Marco's Pinnacle. The last few attempts were ... sub-optimal.

I didn't actually do anything different other than go a lot slower on the trigger but that was all that was needed. Going slowly and paying attention to what was around me got me to where I wanted to go - whaddaya know.
We stopped at Taco on the way out and back for some camera time.

Gorgeous dive! Lots of fish around - the big ling cods and cabezons looked like they were nesting as they did not want to move away from the rocks they were around. Beautiful hydrocorals everywhere near Taco and Marco's and the usual fly by from the sea lions.

-> 81ft, 40-50ft viz, 50F

I got some waypoints on this route which I need to use again next time to make sure they're good enough to go into the navigation memory bank.
