5/20 at Edmonds EUP, 9:30 splash (1 hr after high tide). Vis was 5-8 ft of wonderful green murk. Actually not that bad considering the minus tides. We only ended up in the mid grid no mans lands for the first 20 min or so.

Lake Washington is decent...probably 10-15 ft.

Around 47 degrees at depth, warming up to 54 degrees in the top 10-20 ft...great for deco stops.

This is the time of year I switch to lake diving for a couple of months. :)

Was really nice sunny great viz in shallows then wall of brown water below 38 feet. It was super low tide so hopefully not a long term trend.

Day Island Wall 4-9 was about 15' at low slack. Fabulous, perfectly timed, 70 minute dive!

4-8 at Keystone. The pilings and jetty down to the bottom of the slope were a bowl of milk due to the winds and waves. No surprise there. Should have brought cereal instead of scuba gear (not really)! Down a bit deeper it opened up to a hazy 15ft.

Edmonds Saturday was the best I've ever seen it, by probably double the distance. Hard to measure when it's that far, but 50 foot would not be an exaggeration. I would conservatively say 45-60 foot!
