    Back In The Water – Finally!

    I woke up to a solid blue swell map around Palos Verdes.

    Even the slight rain couldn’t be an excuse to stay away.

    Calm seas at Terranea Resort.
    I arrived at 7:30 am – it was calm.

    A couple of divers in the parking lot commented if they should be concerned that there are no other divers around.

    I told them that we usually meet at 8 am.

    “So, we’re not going to come out all glowing from Fukushima?” he asked.

    “I can’t promise you that,” I responded.

    I met some of the regular crowd – Reverend Al, Randy, Ben and Rob.

    They agreed to take an inexperienced diver such as myself.

    Diving off the point.
    Everyone made an easy entry off the Point.

    Back in the ocean!

    We surfaced and had to do a surface swim a few hundred yards to an easy exit.

    O'm back!
    I brought a can of Budweiser with me on the dive; the can was mushy at 60 feet and was too warm to drink when I got back on land.

    Traditional debriefing!

    Traditional debriefing ensued!

    I plan to be back next Sunday with my the ghetto grill and North Korean wine and mushrooms.
