    Solo Diving

    Nick wasn’t interested in diving today because of the visibility yesterday.

    Daniel M from Redondo Pier is getting his tank serviced but was willing to rent one.

    I had to work early and didn’t want to wait for Daniel.

    If I’m not going to see anything, I might as well go deep.

    I got in the water about 9:45 AM.

    Other divers were there, mostly students.

    I descended to 20 feet and started heading West.

    Visibility sort of sucked, but that was no surprise – it was about 10 feet.

    I went over the shelf and kept swimming slowly to 85 feet.

    I turned and started going East.

    Coming up at 70 feet I found an “Alamo” baseball cap.

    “Alamo” as in “Remember the Alamo,” not the car rental place.

    I put the hat on and wore it all the way in.

    At 60 feet I swam North and then back again.

    I just took it slow.

    I saw a group of crabs, some starfish, small fish and trash.

    At 1200 psi I started to head in.

    At 10 feet I ascended.

    I was about 20 yards from shore, still wearing my baseball cap.

    The waves were 2-3 feet but broke close to shore.

    I took my fins off in the water and walked to shore.

    In with: 3100 psi
    Out with: 1000 psi
    Maximum depth: 85 feet
    Waves: 2-3 feet
    Visibility: 10 feet
    Water Temperature: Pretty Cool
    Total Bottom Time: About 35 minutes
