    Logged Dive #18 Long Point, CA

    Long Point, CA
    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Solo Diving — really solo. No one was around Long Point.

    I broke my zipper dressing myself.

    Then, I discovered that I forgot my hood.

    Thinking this was an omen, I thought about cancelling.

    But, true to Ed’s spirit, “Just keep going on…” I went in.

    Water was warm.

    However, with cold water leaking down my back from my broken zipper and an unprotected head, I felt myself getting cold and started getting “edgy.”

    Better safe than sorry, I made it a short trip.

    I rode six foot waves coming in.

    In with 3300 psi
    Out with 2500 psi
    Max Depth 25 feet
    Waves: 6 feet
    Coldest Water: 60 degrees???

    A dimmed sky from a nearby fire.

    The sun is blocked from ash.

    There were fires in Orange County that made the air so thick that it was partially blocking the sun.

    Ash covered my car when I came back.

    Logged Dive #17 The Old Marineland, CA

    Long Point, CA

    (aka The Old Marineland)

    Solo Diving

    Ed is still messing around with his bar.

    I woke up around 7 AM and said, “Damn, I need to go diving.”

    I got down to Long Point at 8 AM; other divers were there.

    I went out on the rocks about 8:30 AM.

    The water was cool and visibility really sucked — about 8 feet.

    Nice dive that lasted about an hour.

    In with: 3200 psi.
    Out with: 800 psi
    Waves: 3 feet
    Max depth: 40 feet.
    Coldest Temperature: 50 degrees ????
