Living it up before getting married?

Post by YellowEye » Tue Aug 07, 2018 10:05 pm

Well, our buddy Derek CS had an awesome six gill encounter last week... And over the weekend, we further celebrated his last days of bachelorhood under the Deception Pass bridge, and at Keystone!

It was Derek's first time at the Pass....

Viz was 20+ at Deception and 30+ at Keystone :partydance:

We had a nice stop at Whidbey Pies at Green Bank Farm for some delicious lunch between dives.

Here were some of the snaps...

Derek loves crabs!
The pilings were stunning

Hope everyone had a great low-exchange weekend!

Sounds like an incredible day of diving. There hasn’t been vis that good at Keystone in months! Good vis in the pilings with the sun beams and fish is such a special thing. Beautiful photos too as usual.

Yes, big thank you to YE for putting that day together. I had a lot of fun! Good weather. Good dives. Good friends. Good pies. Looking forward to getting back out to Deception Pass.

The cap on the shutter button of my Olympus EPL5 popped off sometime ago (apparently a not uncommon issue), and it's been touch and go inside the housing since. So I wasn't able to snap any pics at Keystone, but got some OK pics at Deception Pass.
