above water: rainy and dreary and "cold" (70 degrees... it feels chilly after 100+ degree August temperatures).
underwater: it's wet anyway, so who cares (oh and it's 73 degrees.. warmer than the air)
|The motorcycle... suspended at ~38 feet.|
The water temperature all weekend was 73 degrees (surface and bottom). On Saturday, we explored the "creature cave" (with the Stop sign and big spider), the wreckage of a nose-dived plane, the suspended motorcycle, and the sea biscuit fossils. On Sunday, I spent the better part of the day practicing skills with Reggie's Instructor class as they gave basic skill presentations then went on a fun dive to the bullseye platform at 120'. After diving, I got to try on some drysuits... got quite chilly after a few hours in the water and excited to give the drysuits a try even though when I left my giant black "asteroid suit" up north, I swore I'd never wear one again. I guess I just can't resist super flattering black suits (or any other expensive gear...).

|Sea biscuit fossils (~30 million years old!!).|
|Sea biscuit wedged in place (for 30 million years...). So cool!|
|Stop sign at the creature cave... it got kind of silty after we all swam around it for a while.|
