    SCUBA Diving Veterans Park

    I was called into work last Sunday morning and was unable to attend Sunday Services.

    I’m trying to dive at least once a week now that Psycho Bitch is gone, so this is my weekly dive.

    Veterans Park in Redondo Beach

    There were a lot of Divers here, most of them students.

    I was determined to find this so called “Monument,” also known as, “a pile of cinder blocks;” I was told to go off the stairs, dive to 50 feet and go South.

    Logged SCUBA Dive #386

    Solo Diving
    Veterans Park, Redondo Beach, CA

    In With: 2700 psi
    Out With: 1100 psi
    Max depth: 70 feet
    Waves: Pretty flat
    Visibility: 15 feet plus
    Water Temperature: 59 degrees, colder at depth
    Total Bottom Time: About 40 minutes

    Entrance was easy – it was harder to avoid the students thrashing around in the surf zone than the actual waves.

    I descended in 20 feet of water and swam West.

    The canyon edge.

    At 40 feet, the edge of the canyon appears – you just see black as it falls to 85 feet, really quickly.

    Attack crabs lie in wait…

    Attack crab.

    Deadly attack crab.

    I didn’t find the blocks, and the visibility was pretty good.

    I don’t leave my camera on all the time while I dive, so I didn’t get a picture of the nurse shark that swam past me as I was coming back up the canyon.

    It scared the shit out of me – the shark probably was only four feet long, but water magnifies things by 25 percent, and my imagination magnifies sharks by 300 percent.

    Well, Veterans Park is really not a very exciting place to dive, scenery wise, so I headed in after 30 minutes.
