    Dove With Daniel M from Redondo Pier

    I met Daniel around 10 AM.

    The conditions were excellent yesterday, so here I am again.

    Daniel informed me of a diving accident here a few days ago.

    Yesterday, I forgot to mention, there was a crude memorial in the cove.

    People were throwing flowers into the water; I thought it was a religious cult.

    Apparently a father and son were diving off of the cove.

    The son panicked and held his father; they both started to sink.

    The father released his son’s weight belt and pushed him away.

    The son held his breath on the way up.

    He died on the way to the hospital of an aneurism or Embolism?

    They had only been in 15 feet of water.

    Easy entry; Daniel got a cramp early on his leg.

    We went North of Pigeon Shit cave.

    Absolutely spectacular!

    Probably better than yesterday.

    There is such a variety of environment to the North.

    We saw lobsters, barracudas, a shovelnosed guitar fish, a bat ray and yes, sheephead.

    It was a slow paced 100% pure sightseeing dive.

    I followed Daniel the second half.

    Easy exit. It’s father’s day today; I’m heading to my parents’ place afterwards.
