Rich got a flu shot the day before and he wasn't feeling well to do a dive so he skipped the dive. A lot of people showed up and I decided on Crescent Bay and
dive Deadman's Reef.

When we arrived the surf was small and the water looked inviting. We suited up and hit the water. The visibility was looking good for the swim out. We arrived
at the drop down point and after everyone caught their breath we dropped on down.

The visibility was about 15-20 feet. We headed to the reef, but I noticed Deadhenge was to the left and I changed course to swim along it. At the base is the
coffin. I stayed there for a few minutes so the group could see it. Then we headed up and into the reef.

We swam around the reef a few times and then the cold was starting to get to us. We headed on in and went a little fast to get to the inner reef. We swam along
the reef and exited the water.

Rich was on shore and said he saw dolphins where we were and further out he saw a whale. We only saw the usual critters and the kelp keeps growing and
spreading out.

After the dive, we headed to Husky Boys where we discussed the dive and refueled after a cold dive.
