Good morning Divers!!!

Visibility: 10-15 feet
Conditions: Salt water, shore dive, moving to high tide, small waves, surge.
Dive Buddies: Dale, Kristi, George. Total of 16.

Rich was still not feeling well, but he did beach patrol and kept the car keys for everyone. We had a few new people join us at the mall. Since tide was high and
surf was low, we headed for Mountain Ave.

We reached the site and took a look. The waves were small and the ocean looked inviting. We suited up and swam out to the drop down point. We descended
and got ready to take off. One of our divers had to surface and George and myself went up to the surface to see what the problem was. After a few minutes we
headed back down and proceeded with the dive. The majority of the group did find the swim through and had a good time going through it.

My little group did find other divers and they started to follow me. We did see a leopard shark swimming. That little guy was around 3 feet long. After getting
some video of a lobster, we started the long swim back.

I was hoping that we would come across some bat rays but none were found. We were in about 8 feet of water when I decided to end the dive. We surfaced in
front of the life guard stand and exited the water without any problems.

The rest of the group started popping up when I was on shore. We all packed our gear and the majority of the group headed to Husky Boy's for food and
conversation.
