Sun 7-22 - Port Townsend Waterfront

Awesome in the 0-10' depth, then it was murky until about 50' and then opened to 20'~ at depth

Splashed around noon at the Maritime Center and @60South had the timing spot on, the current was pretty much non-existent and we had a nice leisurely hour dive out the rocks to the barge then down down past the barge to the flats and slowly circled back around to the boat launch.

7/21 - Redondo. Pretty good viz like 20-30ft(?), somewhat varied with depth and time, looked better below 40ft. We did 2 dives around 12:30pm and 3pm.

Sun 7-15 - Mukilteo T-Dock

Milky white viz was about 6-12" down to about 30' then it opened up, getting better as we went deeper. We probably had 20' or so at 130'.

Hit the geodome on the second pass through, lot's of fish hanging out, including a big rat fish.

Pretty good current though and it was depth dependent. Wasn't too bad below 100', wasn't too bad above 40', definitely wished we had brought scooters for that in between depth.

Breakfast after at the DK brewery was awesome with a chicken fried steak and an Irish porter with a shot of espresso in it!

Rockaway Beach Park, Bainbridge Island, 7/16 -- 12-15ft visibility at depth, murky 'n green in the shallows.

We hit it about an hour before high tide. Current was mild, maybe half a knot to the south. Entered at the buoy, followed the line out to the first reef, then followed downslope to the second ~90ft reef. Plenty of anenome, sea cuces, crabs, and stars. No wolf eels or octo. Two nudibranchs. My buddy thinks he saw a shark rolling past the shallow reef, but I'm not convinced.

Mukilteo T-Dock on Saturday 7-14-18. Got in at the low minus 3 tide. Vis was 6" down to 5ft, then about 2-5ft of algae bloom toilet water to 20ft or so. Below that it opened up to a clear 20-30ft from the dome all the way down to the man. It was really nice. Not much crab there this year but i still got enough to make last nights dinner extra delicious.

Saltwater State Park on 7/15: horizontal visibility was 25' plus. Vertical visibility was such that shimmering light from the surface was still visible at 50'. Temperature was a balmy 54 degrees at depth.

Redondo 7-9. Super low tide, fairly good sized exchange, mini Redondo river, 10' initially then opened to a nice 20' as we went north. South side was terrible 3' to 8' or so.

Keystone on Saturday, 7-7-18. A dirty 10 ft along the jetty and pilings. There were a few spots in the shallows in-between where it was a sunny 15' in the kelp. Really pleasant. Also, the missing Lings may be returning :norris: :supz:

Many fond memories of your dad with his single 72, Mae West, 3 prong Hawaiian sling and a goodie bag full of fish.
