Good morning Divers!!!

Temp: 60 F
Visibility: 20 feet
Conditions: Salt water, shore dive, low tide, small waves, surge.
Dive Buddies: Total 20.

Conditions return to normal this week. Visibility drops down to 20 feet. A bit of surf comes our way and a small storm is coming.

At the mall, a few new people showed up and it was a smaller crowd. With the tide being low, we headed to Crescent Bay to dive Deadman's Reef. We
check out the conditions and it's looking good. The rain hasn't arrived yet.

While swimming out it started to rain. At the drop down point, a few people remained waiting for me. Another group went ahead and started their dive.
We dropped on down and grouped up and headed to the reef. I saw Deadhenge through the corner of my eye and we swam towards it and followed it
to the reef.

We went up and over the reef and into one of the canyons. There was a lot of kelp and it made it a little hard to get down to the bottom. We swam up
and over and into the next canyon and there wasn't any kelp there. We stayed there a bit.

Air was getting a bit low so we headed back up and over the reef and made our way to shore. Some didn't have enough air to make it all the way to
shore so we ascended and swam the rest of the way to shore on the surface.

After packing up, off to Husky Boy's we went to compare notes. Some saw a large horn shark. Many lobsters were hidden in the rocks. I noticed a lot
of male sheephead fish.
