Edmonds Oil Dock is about 250 yards according to the map. I would say that the surface swim to Metridium Wall would not be that far, perhaps half that or less.

We were there on a fairly large exchange day and did not notice any current.

Sgt. Pepper exhibiting excellent buoyancy skills by riding Diver_C at Norrander's reef. Rich had not a clue the whole time.

Norrander's reef is a great dive. A small reef, but every inch was covered in life. There are two other dives there that are usually done as boat dives, because they are a bit of a surface swim, but you can do Metridium Wall without too much work. At low tide you would actually walk halfway there. W...

I put the white piece on the outside and the black piece on the inside. Not sure if that's the way that you're supposed to do it, but I dove this morning and they worked great.

My petite, innocent-looking sister ALWAYS gets the bomb swab. Once she had a small Beaker doll in her bag, and when they opened it up to swab it that was the first thing the guy saw. He burst out laughing and couldn't stop giggling while he was doing the test. http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g302/...

Oh, how cute. Sgt. Pepper and I had an adult follow us the last two dives at Cove 2, but only one, and no pup.

You are the most common human in Cove 2, after all...they must think you're some kind of seal that they've just never seen before. :)

Scaly Lithodid? And a mystery fish!

Both of these were found on the boundary line last night at cove 2. I apologize for the quality, he was booking it and kicking up some dust. Is this a scaly lithodid? It was one cool looking crab! http://i59.photobucket.com/albums/g302/penelopestjohn/scalylithoid.jpg And who is this guy? http://i59....

I absolutely LOVE my suit, but my LDS said they can't replace the neck seal. Why not? ...

I don't think it's pile driving...that has a rhythm, this was random and spaced far apart. It could be some other construction related noise, though.

Cove 2 go boom?

Sergeant Pepper and I were diving Cove 2 early this morning and heard a few loud, sharp explosion-type sounds. They weren't successive and seemed random. I have heard them once before although I can't quite remember what time of day I heard them the first time. Has anybody else heard them and/or hav...
