Hey GillyWeed--if I had thought it would have cheered you, I would have done my "gitdownandgetfunky" Honey Bear dance, but we would have to agree on no cameras or video. If your friends/buddy bails, you're always welcome with me/us, but I completely understand not diving. (One of the great...

I'm with you Senor Pepper. I didn't feel very confident or safe with the Open Water and Advanced Open Water classes. It's only been through repetition and debriefings with buddies after nervous making situations that I've gained some competency. Classwise--Scooters, cliques and perception aside, the...

Next time.....) And thanks Captain Jack--I didn't even see your post saying you'd be there last night until tod...

For Sgt. Pepper and Diver C, last night in Cove 2 it would be: Fighting Shrimp Wallops! Ask Sgt. Pepper about the SUPER aggressive shrimp that chased after the both of them.

I'm drooling on my keyboard just thinking about it. (Could be your great descriptions or it could be the monotony of our grey weather and sub-par vis of late.)

My brother, the Diver!

I'm so excited and proud. My little brother passed his openwater course on Sunday. Here he is Saturday right before his second dive. I think Les Davis makes him happy.

Ugh. I do feel like a scene-stealing cheater. First, I resort to prowling through Lowell's critters to find the fish, then, when Diver C shows me how to post pictures on this thing, I steal his thunder!

I'm sorry. I'll say some Hail Marys and do some sort of nice kharmic penance.

Amazing 6-Gill shot. How close was the breath-holding diver next to it?

Also, my last guess for #30 is a Pacific Staghorn Sculpin.

If I'm right, I'm taking zero credit as I made an exhaustive search of.......... "Lowell's Critter Pictures" in order to make this guess. :prayer:

Sounder, now don't be like that. I never said you couldn't play; I said you were so good you needed a handicap. I should make you squint or waggle your head back and forth when looking at the fish eyes. But, I'm getting more in the groove, so Bring It! :) (Bubbles? That's my exotic dancer name. I've...

I think Mr., uh, BbbleMkr will be home and we can all dive together. Plus, it would be great to dive with Amy again. Think we can get Gillyweed in?

And, uh,

Well I'll be darned. I never expected a BABY wolf eel. I had forgotten how pretty they are when they're little. (Not that they're ugly later; it's just more of an acquired taste.)
