Turned out great, Jerry! And you can't go wrong with The Beach Boys, ever! I'm glad you had those surface shots of you and your triples to add. We really need to get some workable diving shots of them. I'm bummed it didn't work out this time. Maybe they are holding out for an oceanic setting to make their underwater debut instead. Thanks for putting the video together.
Silly humans, fins are for fish. Mammals use flippers.

I worked at the hatchery in 89 for nine months and never dove it the whole time I worked there. Wish I had. Better get in the water before the middle of Oct.; because, the salmon run ends about the first of November. Steelhead are in the river up until around Feb.; but, in increasing limited numbers. If you need a dive buddy, some of us are on this site. You can also check these sites:

When it gets around 54 degrees or below, you know I switch to my full length 3/16" wetsuit. Above that I wear my shorty and wetsuit that goes "boing, boing, boing". I showed you that last time we were at the river. Remember, I mentioned you really thick wetsuit probably wouldn't do that!
I dove the Feather River two years ago in swimming trunks and t-shirt.

The one in Corning is the one I was thinking about .... my mistake there! I don't gamble, I don't have very good luck. I just play the penny machines and drink the free soda. Got to be careful with kids there ... the arcade for kids; kids can go through more money than adults. I spent $1 in three hours on the penny machines; my kids? A roll of quarters in 15 minutes on pinball machines! ... and my kids thought I was gambling!
The food there is great, also! Senior discounts on Tuesday and Thursday ... (Oops! I'm young ...) You can pig out for less than a burger at most fast food joints!
I took Joshua there for his 21st b-day. He won $100 with the card they gave him to play the machines. I told him "now is the time to cash out". He still wanted to play; but, took my advise. I went and played the same machine after he did and lost $5 bucks. Was it good advise I gave him ... or just my bad luck? At least he walked away a winner!
