I dove at Refugio this morning, real early. Judging from my current pseudo-comatose state, maybe too early. This is minute 19 since my arrival at work and I feel no amount of coffee can save me now. Ben and I met at 6:30 AM at the Bacara to get in the water by 7:00, aka. sunrise. Haskell’s Beach looked gnarly so we drove to Refugio. And Refugio was pretty good, protected from the swell that came in last night and relatively clear. Diving at dawn was a genius move. It’s real nice out there with the sun coming up and visibility seems best at this hour. We wanted lobster but that didn’t work out. I’m sure they’re down there but they aren’t making it easy.
