    Solo Diving

    Yesterday I called Robert From Long Point to see if he wanted to dive Long Point.

    After telling him about the poor visability, he declined.

    So, Redondo it is!

    I got there about 10 AM.

    There were many other divers there.

    I found it easier to put my fins on at the water by taking my tank off and using that to lean on.

    It was really shallow going out — I was sort of skimming on my stomach.

    I went over the shelf – I ran in to two other divers coming up.

    Going over, I was right under a huge school of mackerel.

    I went down to 82 feet, got a massage (as Ed would put it) and came back up to the top of the shelf.

    I walked ashore shore.

    In With: 2800 psi
    Out With: 1000 psi
    Max depth: 82 feet
    Waves: 2 feet
    Visibility: 15 feet and clear
    Water Temperature: Cold, but warmer than yesterday

    Dove with Nick

    Met Nick at 9:45 AM — he needed air, I bought a new pair of gloves.

    We entered the water probably around 10:30 AM.

    I exchanged numbers with “Robert” from Long Point – he expressed interest in going tomorrow.

    We went to the same kelp bed as yesterday.

    I hunted, Nick just followed.

    Surprisingly, the water was really cold, the air was warm.

    Visibility sucked to hell – 10 feet and soupy.

    I broke open several sea urchins over many of the reefs we traveled.

    I only saw one sheephead and it was short.

    We stayed under about 45 minutes.

    At 1000 psi we started heading in; we came up right on target, very close to shore.

    There was a swim suit model posing for a photographer on the rocks.

    What a welcome!

    In with: 2800 psi
    Out with: 500 psi
    Max depth: 35 feet
    Waves: 2 feet
    Visibility: 10 feet and soupy
    Water temperature: 50 degrees F (Nick’s thermometer)
    Sort of low tide
