ThThTh 1/10 Viaduct Apocalypse edition!

6:30 meet at Redondo. Tides look good for lumpy hunting and winds not off the charts... yet. :joshsmith: :rawlings: :penelope: :norris: :rjack:

This will most likely be my last ThThTh until the tunnel opens because traffic is going to be even more of a cluster than it is already!

Re: ThThTh 1/3

I'm not sure. Forecast is 35mph south winds and there's an almost 14 foot exchange. So, will be super low tide. Halocline also makes for bad conditions for lumpy hunting.

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:
