Re: Diving as lockdown phases out

As an addition to the fray: https://wdfw.wa.gov/about/covid-19-updates

Fishing opens tomorrow. Get ready for the circus of crowds, closures, and tangles with enforcement.

Re: whales and isolation

Great shots. As a citizen-scientist monitoring station, I imagine with all the reduced water traffic the large aquatic mammal wildlife are wondering why things have gone so quiet, and you may see more sightings with reduced boat traffic. I wonder if they get tinnitus too? Your observation that the d...

Re: Virtual Salish See and beyond dive sim... (with photogrammetry)

Lily- This is awesome. As a classroom science teacher, I am excited to see your progress. One of the lessons I teach is how light changes underwater, refraction, distortion, color shift, and so on (and why!). With the current status of school being "remote" I'm always looking for resources to keep s...

Re: The Bottle Thread

Well, something a little different today from Port Townsend. Live ammunition, circa WW I? And a few older bottles, the two on the right are probably from the 1890's. bottles200314a1.png bottles200314b1.png Ammo looks to be a stripper clip for an M1 Garand (WW2). Possible for older rifle, but would ...

Re: DIW access

Growing up, going to my grandpa's cabin on Camano Island, we'd often have to clear the logs from the driveway ramp to the beach and the bulkhead. As residents on the beach were not impressed with chainsaws, we would grab the peevees from the shed and roll them up the driveway to dry and would proces...

Trashure Diving in a lake

So back about a month ago I went for a dip in a local lake to, again, clean up trash. Had to call the PD about my find. Also did a favor for a fisherman. The dive itself was good and cool. Max depth 20-ish feet. By the time I was done "Up" was the way the bubbles went. You'll see how dark it gets st...

Re: Did you lose your gun?

Police will run it, but otherwise it's finders keepers. Probably not worth getting it smithed. What's the brand? Looks like a .32 or .38Auto

Cool article Norris. Anyone up for a lobster dive? (never thought I would EVER say that one in this area of the US) I'm game for an invasive species hunt! Its sort of whimsical! Kinda like a snipe hunt. When we were kids my parents would make us run around at night with a trash bag, near the sand du...
