Wife and I are in Monterey for a week of vacation. Planned a dive with BrianC for today, and had a great dive at Breakwater. Saw two octopi (Brian saw 3), several nudibranchs (which I am sure Brian can ID, I cannot), dive bombing cormorants, huge, I mean HUGE, sea cucumbers and I would say thousands of starfish.
54 min, 46 fsw, 55F. 10 ft. viz
Haven't had my drysuit on in almost a year, so it was a bit rough at the beginning, but I got all straightened out during the surface swim and was nice and calm during the descent. Afterward we grabbed some lunch and the three of us hiked Pt. Lobos park. Didn't take my gopro, as I didn't want to task load, but we're diving it again on Sunday when we add Evil Brian, DiveCandy, Fugu and others to our group.
Here's some pics from Lobos, though.
Love and Honor...
Nice report! Ya'll have fun now, ya hear?
A CLEAR CONSCIENCE IS USUALLY THE SIGN OF A BAD MEMORY
...enjoy your visit...going to the airshow in Watsonville, about 35 miles north of Monterey on Saturday.
Nice report. Lovely pics and have fun!
Rather be diving.
Nice panoramas guys!
My phone rang on our way into Point Lobos yesterday. It was Brian asking what are you doing here!? Apparently, we passed them as they were leaving (they were in Gary's rental car so we did not notice them). We are members of the Point Lobos Foundation and were going to a member's only Docent lead walk. The docents who lead these walks are very well versed on all aspects of the Park: geology, natural and human history. Very interesting tour!
When we arrived there were whale spouts one after the other. It isn't grey whale migration season. Using binoculars we determined them to be humpbacks. Based on the size and shape of the spouts some were likely Blue whales. I had my new DSLR along for practice. Since I quit shooting topside with my SLR in the early 1990s I have a lot of relearning to do. Whales were too far away to try for photos. Here are a few of my landscape images. Brian and Gary and his wife walked the north end of the park. We were on the south part of the park near sunset.
And one just because you can see a whale blowing and it's back.
