    Solo Diving

    I arrived at Long Point around 9:30 AM — I had just gotten off of work to start a four day weekend.

    I wanted to start earlier.

    I used my regulator set-up.

    It’s very cheap compared to Ed’s — I just got it back from having the first stage repaired.

    The air was very hot and when I entered the water, so the water seemed very cold.

    Other divers, about six of them, had entered the water about 30 minutes before me.

    This was purely a sight seeing dive.

    I hung out around the far kelp bed; broke open several sea urchins and fed the fish.

    I saw a sheephead with part of its back ripped off.

    I believe it was a wound from a spear?

    I will definitely be careful not to spear shorts.

    At about 1000 psi I started heading directly West to go it.

    I surfaced too far West and over the rocks.

    Definitely not the place to be.

    I made it back to the same place place that I entered from.

    A Fish and Game Warden was there when I surfaced.

    Dove with Nick

    I met Nick at 10:15 AM. He brought his camera; I had my spear.

    We headed straight for the cove and went in.

    It was low tide — so low that the ocean came up to the sand beneath the rocks.

    We went to the same kelp bed as yesterday.

    A purple nudibrach.

    Shooting a sheephead in a preemptive strike.

    I shot three legal sized sheephead.

    It was basically a great dive.

    We were underwater about 50 minutes.

    We lost each other towards the end, but we surfaced after a few minutes of being alone.

    Coming out off the cove at Long Point.

    Macho Man me!

    Do I look macho with those fish, or what?

    Out with: 400 psi
