Good morning Divers!!!

Begin Time: 9:01am
Time: 37 min
Max Dept: 40ft
Temp: 59 F
Visibility: 30 feet
Conditions: Salt water, shore dive, high tide, small waves, surge.
Dive Buddies: Total 18.

I arrived at the mall and there were a few new people. Rich was diving and with it being high tide, he chose Heisler Park. At 7:45 sharp, we left the mall and
headed to the beach.

We arrived and checked out the site. It was calm and peaceful. Very inviting. We suited up and headed out.

At the drop down point we broke the group up into 3 sections. The first group was suppose to be the hour diver group and they took off first. Rich was going
to lead the second group and they descended next. I waited from the others to arrive and we descended after Rich cleared the area.

My group descended and when everyone was ready we swam for the reef. It wasn't too far because we swam very far to reach it instead of swimming towards it.
We swam along the reef and I recorded a few shots.

My ears were having some problems and I couldn't descend below 40 feet. My group reached Rich's group and left them with Rich's group. I headed back in but
at a slow speed and stayed around 40 feet. It was a nice swim back and saw many schooling fish. A ton of baby Senoritas swam by.

When I reached the shore, Rich was there along with some members of his group. The remainder of the divers stayed longer. After the dive, we headed to
Husky Boy's for food and conversation. Another excellent day of diving.
