    Logged Dive #122 Veteran’s Park, CA

    Veteran’s Park, Redondo Beach, CA

    Dove with Instructor John and his Open Water students Franklin and Eleanor.*

    In With: 3000 psi
    Out With: 2000 psi
    Max depth: 50 feet
    Waves: 1-4 feet
    Visibility: 5-10 feet, getting clearer
    Water Temperature: About 60 degrees Fahrenheit and getting warmer.
    Total Bottom Time: 24 minutes
    *Note: Student names have been changed.*

    Franklin kept floating up; he had a tough time equalizing.

    Eleanor made it to the bottom at 20 feet; I followed her.

    Franklin was still having problems for a while but eventually we all made it.

    John lead, the couple followed, and often held hands.

    Talk about buddy diving!

    I took up the rear.

    Franklin stopped at the lip of the shelf… he was still having problems equalizing.

    Eleanor of course stopped and waited; John had to swim back and find us.

    Was this a boring dive?

    Not really.

    I would rather look at students diving than look at nothing – nothing is often what is seen here off of Redondo.

    There is a really hot diving instructor that I saw; maybe she’s from Sea D Sea?

    Visibility was better on this dive than on my earlier two.

    I was first on shore and helped the couple onto the sand; they were exhausted.

    Logged Dive #121, Redondo Beach, CA

    Veteran’s Park, Redondo Beach, CA

    This was a “fun dive” with Instructor John and his Open Water students Stan The Macho Man and Tuasopo.*

    In With: 2400 psi
    Out With: 1000 psi
    Max depth: 60 feet
    Waves: 1-4 feet
    Visibility: 5-8 feet
    Water Temperature: About 55 degrees Fahrenheit
    Total Bottom Time: 30 minutes or so.
    *Note: Student names have been changed.*

    This is the students’ last dive before certification.

    Not much to this dive.

    We followed John down the shelf to about 60 feet; we then headed back.

    Stan the Macho Man strayed away from the group a few times.

    “Stan” is the typical wanna-be “macho” SCUBA diver.

    During the whole course he kept bragging to the group about his death defying feats including sky diving – something that he apparently did only once.

    We came ashore with no problems; Franklin and Eleanor had been resting during our dive.
