Sorry you couldn't do the second dive with us. We had a great dive at Redondo saw several octopus, one little guy out in the open and a squid. Viz was awesome compared to what I've been experiencing lately.

Wish I could have been there as well. TTN will spoil you for "normal" sound viz...

Have you been seeing the Spot Prawns deeper or is it because it's night or just that time of year or...?

The prawns were down between 85-95 fsw and they were pretty big.

Life can be short and dives even shorter. Time off work will put it all in perspective.

Both dives were great!
But sorry to admit, the Redondo dive was a little bit better. (You should have been there Ron!)
It was great to meet and dive with you Mattleycrue76 (Matt). :supz:
And great diving with you Scuba Scott! =D>
The one thing that is always awsome to see is a Sqid out in the open water collumn. It was small and almost completely transparent. Matt and I were watching it with our lights and Scott practically surfaced trying to get a picture of it. The little sucker did not want to get his picture taken! ](*,)

After two night dives I was a bit chilled but with the neautral bouyancy and the extreeme cold, my low back pain was gone! . ( I told my Chiropractor it is the best Ice therapy around!) :supz:

Looking forward to our Redondo dive(s) next Thursday night! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Who else is going to join us? :smt064

I couldn't have done the second dive anyways. Remember the 3 Tree curse? The reason I was having a hard time reading my computer at depth was because the battery compartment was flooded. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Walt at UWS did a great job and spent a lot of time drying out and cleaning the battery compartment. Everything works now, but the true test will be when I dive it next week.
