    Diving Update And Conditions Report

    I haven’t been diving since May, for various reasons.

    I came back from my secret trip to Iowa with a cold from hell, but tried to get back in the water two weeks ago.

    I geared up with Kenny and some 16 year old chick and made it all the way down to the cove where the pounding surf made us call the dive.

    Nice Bob described his dive at the time as the only dive where he was nervous going out and coming back in.

    Last week I celebrated too much Saturday, when Ronda Rousey beat the crap from that Brazillian bitch, to show up for Sunday services.

    Today, I woke up with a cold and an earache.

    I popped a bunch of Sudafed and drove to Terranea Resort with my gear, hoping for the best.

    I had a choice between calling my dive again, or doing a very painful dive – my right ear was plugged.

    I provided shore support to Chipper, Mike S., and Nice Bob.

    Looks Easy
    All three went off the Point, and made entering in hazardous conditions look relatively easy.

    The Cove At Terranea
    I hung out around the Cove.

    This Buds for you! Chipper, Mike S., and Nice Bob.

    Chipper was disappointed in me; he said, “You don’t dive anymore, don’t update your blog regularly and show up to debrief in an Albania shirt looking like Zach from The Hangover.”

    That is me.

    I look like Zach from The Hangover?

    The debrief
    The Debrief.

    Well, I have been keeping in shape by training for the Senior Citizens’ Division of the UFC…

    Cage Fighting

    Cage Fighting.

    I’ll try again next week to get in the water.

    Oh, yeah – the dive report!

    Chipper, Bob and Mike S. reported good conditions of 15 to 25 feet of visibility.

    Non-Diving Report And Other Things

    I really wanted to get back in the water Sunday.

    Even though it rained the previous day, the swell maps made it look calm and the sun was out.

    Well, I was the ONLY diver who showed up at Terranea Resort, and I quickly discovered why…

    Conditions.

    The water was pretty green and foamy with some occasional waves that could be a problem.

    I stayed out.

    And in other news…

    I have been requested to re-present my adventure of diving and touring Albania in 2012 to the Dive N Surf Dive Club. The story is a little dated, but still entertaining – things constantly are getting better in the most under-rated country in Europe, and it is seriously a trip you may want to consider.

    Albania is a beautiful, almost untouched country, right on the Ionian Sea and with the dollar so strong now, it is a true bargain.

    See what you are missing, and even if you aren’t a diver, it would still be an adventure and a great trip.

    If I have enough seriously interested people, I am willing to arrange a group trip to Albania next year.

    Time: 7 PM
    Location:
    2nd Half Sports Grill!
    516 N. Sepulveda Blvd.
    Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

    I have been told to cut out the boring parts and keep it to 30 minutes.
