Nice pics Matt! I will have to return. I recall that the viz was really good the last time we were there....I wonder if it's a good viz kind of place? That would rock.

Well, dang, I was planning on diving there tomorrow morning. Is the access completely blocked?

Well, it is a long surface swim.....

Getting the word out never hurts....I was unaware of the boating limitations for EUP for a long time until I read about it on another board. I don't have a boat, though, so it never really applied.

Peter, you could also notify some of the dive shops around here. I found a weight pouch at EUP and took it to the UWS near there. It was reunited with it's owner fairly quickly because she called to see if anybody had found it.

I'm pretty rotten with names, too, but I had a great time! It was wonderful to put some faces with some posts.

If I forget your names, I apologize in advance. :)

I saw a stubby squid, too...I wonder if it was the same one?

Star Trek and the Holy Grail

I was cleaning up some bookmarks and came across this gem. To quote my friend Mike... "I declare it to be the ultimate geek video, upon which all other geek videos shall be judged and fail."
