Three Tree on the first day of February was 20'. Nice, considering the glacial silt in the water from river run off

C2 sunday night.. vis between 5-10' "Milk, Silt and Seals" was the theme of the dive. 3-4 full size pinnipeds, full on mayhem and madness periodically stirring things up and reducing vis to zero.

Les davis today was 15ft of viz. That little bit of afternoon sunshine made a big difference too.

Skyline Wall in Anacortes, 2-24-18: Decent 10 ft today, maybe even a dark 15 ft at times. The cucumbers are out feeding again so everything was really colorful. Found a big king crab at 60 ft :norris: Made up for only seeing one candy stripe. It was snowing when we got in and cold, but oh so worth the suffering! Breakfast Guinness and a shot of Jim Beam for John’s bday after at the Brown Lantern warmed things back up quickly.

Very cool. Several of us dove Saturday and saw Bandito heading back to the harbor while we were eating at the Wild Fin in Ruston. Awesome about the lumpie. Unique place to find one.
