Tales from the Sun

okay, well really this is just a spot for me to ramble on about random topics

Got in 4 dives this weekend... a wee bit different diving in New England than the Caribbean. In addition, to the extra 4mm of wetsuit (on top of 3mm), hood & gloves, I had to add 26 pounds of additional weight to my BCD.

First shore dive - Rockport, MA - nearly lost my tank as it slid out of the buckle; my weightbelt fell to the bottom and as I tried to catch it with my leg, I got a huge charlie horse and I ended the dive with just 185 PSI. I nearly quit at that point.

Second shore dive - Rockport, MA - I integrated the weights in my BCD and was no longer struggling with it shifting and moving. A much cleaner dive equipment wise and with great visibility. Saw a ton of lobster and crabs... a baby lobster bit my glove!

Third & Fourth Boat dive - Egg Rock & Kettle Rock - Gloucester, MA - If anyone thought there was nothing to see while diving in New England, they were wrong. Ten pound lobsters, bluefish, skates, flounder, sea urchin, star fish, clams, scallops, etc. It was a wonderful experience. Can't wait for the next four dives next weekend.

And, Just so we know, I'm getting a catch license! I want to CATCH my dinner next weekend!
