    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.

    1. It’s not a matter of if, but when you will flood your camera. Electrical contact cleaner works better than alcohol.
