San Juans 6/10

Post by YellowEye » Tue Jun 12, 2012 10:45 pm

Hi
Did three dives in the San Juans on Sunday. The sites we visited were Davidson, Long Island (backside), and Dinner Plate. Viz was not bad, and topside weather was great. Here are a few photos. I found the lumpsucker on a wall(!) at dinner plate. Got to love the San Juans!

Gentlemen, I cannot pick one photo to single out. I find them all marvelous: cup corals, snails, candies, warbonnet, tube worms, and topside shots. The San Juans have been our frequent destination for nearly half a century. :rawlings: None of my pictures approach yours in quality. :salute: We will be spending most of the summer drifting around the islands. Watch for Windwalker. We are normally anchored out or at a buoy, and we are friendly old folk.

I am really feeling the dive-envy after I missed this trip last weekend. Lots of great photos from both of you. Amazing Lumpy detection and fantastic super-macro action!! :notworthy:

Maybe we can all meet for a local dive this coming week?

I'm in, just let's agree where and when. Both days work for me.

I can't manage Monday night, but Wednesday night is perfect. I suggest an evening dive in West Seattle. 7pm perhaps?
