    We made it ashore right on target after a slight swim against a rip tide; we gave a few autographs to some hot chicks in bikinis – they love SCUBA divers!

    We had to debrief with tap water, as drinking in public is illegal.

    Diving Dead Man’s Reef In Laguna Beach

    I finally made it down to Laguna Beach again!

    Military Bob was nice enough to invite me down for a couple of dives.

    It was interesting to note how many divers, fisherman and beach goers can squeeze into residential parking spots.

    Military Bob’s regulator was free flowing; I don’t know what we did - we banged on it, shoved a few screw drivers down to try and adjust it and poured water over it - but we fixed it.

    “Can you breathe through it?” I asked.

    “Yeah.”

    “Well I guess we’re good to go.”
