    I’ve been sick for a week and the weather has really sucked.

    I tried for the April 10th dive, but Pacific Wilderness said that they had plenty of room on today’s boat.

    There were 16 divers on board, mostly students.

    The Dive Master was way mellow and cool; he didn’t give a shit about people solo diving.

    Lion’s Head. At least it’s suppose to look like one!

    Lion’s Head – at least it’s suppose to look like one!

    I was the first one in the water.

    I ran across Debbie the cook doing a solo dive.

    I went down to 80 feet and circled around a bit.

    I saw some really big sheephead!

    A kelp forest.

    A lobster!

    …and some lobsters that tormented me; lobster season is over.

    I also recovered a mask and snorkel that two student divers dropped.

    Apparently, as I found out later, Captain Greg lost an engine going to the first dive spot.

    It was a clogged fuel filter that resulted from a drained fuel tank.

    Captain Greg and bobby fixed it without anyone knowing that there was a problem.

    Veteran’s Park, Redondo Beach, CA

    Solo Diving

    In With: 3100 psi
    Out With: 1100 psi
    Max depth: 80 feet
    Waves: 1-2 feet
    Visibility: 10 feet
    Water Temperature: Pretty cool
    Total Bottom Time: 35 minutes

    It’s been raining and raining.

    After a nice weekend with my family in San Diego, it’s time to burn some calories.

    After a short bike ride and a class at the Gracie Academy, I geared up for an exercise dive.

    Two other divers were gearing up nearby.

    I was in the water at 1 PM.

    It was the typical down the shelf, swim around and look at trash, look at more trash dive.

    Visibility really hasn’t returned since they dredged the bottom to replenish the beach a few weeks ago.

    Easy out, no problems.
