Well folks I'm still in for Sept. 15th/16th. I'm planing on being there Sept. 13th thru the 17th. I will be staying in my trailer at the Navy campground "Monterey Pines RV Park." I will bring my "white" pop up canopy and a table to set up in the grass area above San Carlos (Breakwater) Beach as we did last year. Of course anyone attending bring your own lawn chairs & coolers. Last year I believe we had 9 divers attend this event. It seems this year there is less interest unfortunately. Or maybe it's just bad timing this year. I know that Crabby Jim took the lead last year but he seems AWOL this year. Even if we end up with at least 4 diver attendees, I will consider that a success. JB We will miss you but I understand that a wedding is a big deal to attend too. So if anyone else can make it answer up so we can get a approx head count. Duckbill any chance? Jerry
We had to reschedule the Humboldt Skindivers' club dive in Trinidad Bay from last weekend to the 15th due to a conflict with work by the commercial fishing fleet that made the dive unsafe. That means I'll be diving up here next weekend.
Have fun, fellow divers! I hope the conditions are the best. Please share your stories. I wish I could be there. I'm going to try to take my son up to Oroville Saturday for his first salmon dive, though. The fish ladder opens tomorrow (Friday). Not the ocean, but at least there'll be ocean fish.
Silly humans, fins are for fish. Mammals use flippers.
OK, it's over. Jerry, Mark, CJ, Christian, and I showed up on Saturday. Unfortunately, I was not able to attend Sunday. I did not dive, and really only spent 30 minutes at the Breakwater before packing it in and going to the Russians' for lunch. Shrimp po'boy, baby! Coupled with a, .........well... couple of IPAs, and that's eatin'!
I hope we can get a better turn-out next year? However, it was great meeting Mark (ScubaLawyer on VDH), and getting together with the "regulars". Mark and I have a lot in common with our interest in 50 Fathoms and Scubas!
How did Sunday turn out? Wish I coulda been there.....

A good time for sure was had by all. Saturday I dove with Mark and Christian(xtian) on the pipeline leading to Metridium Fields. On Sunday me knee was bothering me from Saturday's fun dive so I didn't dive. With the help of advil I slept in and didn't get to the beach until 9:45am. I met up with my friend Andy & Will who had arrived around 9:30am. I didn't see CJ so I sat on the beach while Andy & Will dove the pipeline as we had done on Saturday. Andy was using his Kraken DH and both reported that the vis was approx 20', much better than Saturday's so-so vis. Both wished they could have come on Saturday. I will soon post pics and u/w video of the event. I'm looking forward to next year.
