    Nick called yesterday inquiring about diving – he slept in.

    My girlfriend didn’t want to go “waiting.”

    Reverend Al, Dennis and Bob from the Divevets were there.

    I was trolling their message board about cutting the Long Point Gate lock.

    They are wondering if it was me.

    Al asked, I admitted, but I was only joking about cutting the lock.

    I went in off the Point – easy entry for me.

    The swells of course picked up as I touched the water.

    There were actual dive boats anchored off the cove.

    I got down to 55 feet and swam against a mild current to exit the cove.

    Half my dive was sand navigation.

    I was coming ashore as Reverend Al and his group was; Al helped me out by holding one of my fins – I sometimes put my fins on too tight.
