    My first dive of the New Year!

    There’s suppose to be a storm coming in later in the week, so I headed out to dive and party with the Divevets crew.

    The wind was blowing pretty hard from over the hill, but the sea remained fairly calm to everyone’s surprise.

    Most of the group watched the conditions for probably close to a half an hour; I didn’t wait.

    I entered off the cove and went to the right to find the old pier pilings and anything else that might be interesting.

    The water was so cold I had an “ice cream” headache for the first ten minutes of the dive.

    Most of the time, the dive resembled the barren sands of Vet’s park, but I did come by a few sparse and shallow reefs.

    I also ran across a strange creature that I could not identify in the slightest…

    An unidentified creature.

    I made it back in over the rocks with no problem.

    The walk back up was uneventful, but the ensuing party to celebrate New Years was true to the Divevets’ spirit.

    An hour or so of diving, followed by three hours of “debriefing”…

    Let the party begin!

    Happy New Year everyone!

    A toast to the New Year!

    A new chick named Ana was the center of attention at this gathering; it was pretty funny watching two of the divers compete for her attention.
