    I just got back from a trip to Iowa.

    There’s diving in Iowa, believe it or not – I’ll have to go back and dive one day.

    I learned about a sewage spill from Nick and on

    The beaches are now open, but the surf is still up slightly.

    I’ve called off several dives since I last got in to the water.

    Four to five foot waves were breaking off shore, the air was pretty damn cold, too.

    I entered the water around 7:20 AM; the water temperature was 50 degrees Fahrenheit according to a diver with a thermometer.

    I submerged in 20 feet of water and went down the shelf to 90 feet.

    I did not come across the cinder blocks and SCUBA tank from my last dive.

    This was sort of a cold and boring dive actually.

    I went in after just 35 minutes – I was too cold and I was getting lonely.

    I got pounded by a few waves coming ashore; there’s a steep sand step that I tripped over.

    It was hard for me to get up, so I started crawling – someone ran over to help – an instructor maybe?

    I thanked him, but I thought my physical condition has declined somewhat.

    I met Bob from the Divevets; we’ve seen each other around the diving scene.
