2021 diving has been good so far

Post by Sharkb8 »

Hopefully everyone has been having great dives so far this year. I haven't been as wet as I normally am due to some life changes, a Mt Baker seasons pass and a new mountain bike, but I've been trying to make it count when I get to the beach. Besides the usual diving I do around Whidbey and Fidalgo Islands, I've been splashing at the T Dock after work occasionally. I also made it down to the Junkyard over the winter to look for creepy crawlies. Looking forward to more fun for the second half of the year!
