Re: Blue Bird Day in the San Juan Islands

I got to enjoy hanging out in the boat and eating cookies in the sun while you all were grabbing such great shots down below! Nice work everyone! I'd gladly do it again! Puget sound king crabs for everyone!

Re: fox island

That is a styling portable gear setup table! Glad you got to experience the east wall. Nice way to feature dive buddies and the spotted aglajid. I realize I've seen them before. White balancing will help with the colors. :boxer: :smt064 :eek: :pirate: :taco: :rofl:

Very well done not much I can add but I echo all previous comments. I’m also a night dive-aholic so these are great to see.
