When Worlds Collide -- Trip Report!

Post by YellowEye » Thu Apr 14, 2016 8:12 am

Howdy Folks!
We had a great time diving last night at the When Worlds Collide dive at Alki Junkyard!

We had representation from the ThThTh crew, Bubbles & Suds, as well as a few other guests. We probably had between 15 and 20 people!

Viz was great, lots of critters were found. Many found wolfies and octos. A few saw the sea spiders. I was geeking out taking pics of white tipped nudis (one of my favorite nudibranchs) as well as an opalescent nudi. So good to see!

We went to Cactus for libations afterwards! We all had a great time!

:taco: :joshsmith: :burntchef: :partydance: :rofl: :partyman:

Thanks for those who joined us! We'll have to do it again!

Photo evidence to prove it!

What a great turnout. We must've had at least 20 people I am thinking. Great meeting new divers and also seeing some familiar faces. I gotta admit when B&S goes they go big (and early!). ThThTh Crew we have to step up our game at the next meeting.

Thanks everyone for coming, and thanks Mr. Jianormous for the limited edition Bubbles & Suds commemorative hoodie.

I am glad everyone had fun! It's good to see so many smiling faces!

I was hoping to come down and offer shore support (really more shore "waving from a nice, comfortable seated position") but yesterday was a bad pain day. This must happen again!

It definitely will happen again, P! We had a great group but were definitely missing a bunch of people we wished we had with us. the solution: do it again!

I can't believe that this was my first visit to this dive site. Had a great time. P.S. YellowEye saved my dive as he had an extra hood he loaned me. :)

Duckdiver is all the way in the back in a different table with the yellow cap sitting with his wife.

I got to see two wolf eels, Warriors win #73, and Kobe score 60 points to win his final game, so all told, fun night. It was very nice to meet everyone and see the people I hadn't seen in a few months!
