Long Point, CA
(aka The Old Marineland)
Solo Diving — really solo. No one was around Long Point.
I broke my zipper dressing myself.
Then, I discovered that I forgot my hood.
Thinking this was an omen, I thought about cancelling.
But, true to Ed’s spirit, “Just keep going on…” I went in.
Water was warm.
However, with cold water leaking down my back from my broken zipper and an unprotected head, I felt myself getting cold and started getting “edgy.”
Better safe than sorry, I made it a short trip.
I rode six foot waves coming in.
In with 3300 psi
Out with 2500 psi
Max Depth 25 feet
Waves: 6 feet
Coldest Water: 60 degrees???
There were fires in Orange County that made the air so thick that it was partially blocking the sun.
Ash covered my car when I came back.
