    Diving In Albania Adventure Hits Virtual News Stands!

    Adventure Diving Magazine - November 2012 Issue

    This month’s issue of Adventure Diving Magazine features my Diving In Albania article – 12 full color pages, never before seen photographs and four videos of my trip to dive in the small, 70% Muslim country in Europe that does not legally recognized SCUBA diving as a recreational sport.

    Now, in one sitting, you can relive what it took to dive, travel and survive in one of the poorest parts of the former Eastern bloc.

    There’s some other cool stuff in there, too.

    Thanksgiving Weekend Sunday Services At Terranea Resort

    I need to get back into the water, I’ve felt lazy lately and consuming 3,000 calories on Thanksgiving Day has not helped my cage-fighter type body.

    I brought my ghetto grill, but stopped short of bringing my traditional sausages when I got sticker shock at Albertson’s Market.

    Holy crap, food is getting expensive!

    There was a light turn out today – Reverend Al, Chipper and three other divers – Steve, Daniel and Ira, and of course, me.

    Steve was to dive with me, Reverend Al and Chipper until he told us that a friend was coming and he would dive with him.

    The three of us made an uneventful and pain-free entry off the Point.

    Visibility was good.

    Looking for lobsters.
    Well, are there lobsters here?

    Lobster dances under our light
    Yep, and it was dancing under our light, knowing that this is now a Marine Preserve.

    Oooh, Ahhhh – a Nudibranch!

    Scallops – obviously, ready for a night on the town, with that lipstick on.

    I had to cut to the surface at 500 psi and swim half way back to the Cove – Reverend Al and Chipper are rich divers and can afford bigger volume tanks; I dove with a working man’s Aluminum 80.

    Debriefing starts
    The debriefing starts.

    Steve made it back with his dive buddy, Ana – a.k.a. Wrinkles, and she’s single.

    Damn! Foiled again!
