This is a private dive with Kristi. I had to work the day before and wanted to do a dive. Kristi picked me up at my house and without the group, we could go to
Moss Point.

The surface looked good and we suited up. The waves looked larger being on the beach instead of looking from the cliff. We entered the water and swam out
to a drop down point.

While we were descending we saw a leopard shark swim by and fled the area when we got closer. After getting our bearings, we headed south towards deeper
water and then east to go along the coast.

The visibility was pretty bad. Only 10 feet or so. There was a lot of particulate floating in the water and the surge was strong. We swam along the reef and
turned around and headed back. Kristi was getting low on air and I decided to end the dive and surface. We were at the cove where we entered and swam to
shore.

Some big waves came in when we were trying to exit, so we waited it out. A lull came and we exited the water. We packed up and headed home.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
