It was great to finally meet you in person. I hope you will make Deception Pass your frequent place (currents permitting) to dive. :)

Looking forward to getting out there this year. I had camera problems too the first time I went there.

Several of the Ththth crew hit Deception Pass for the gate opening day dive. There were quite a few Marker Bouy members there as well. It was my very first time diving DP, and I was excited and anxious. Im so glad I went. The colors were a bit overwhelming. The current was all that I had expected, so I was prepared for that as much as you can be. Unfortunately my camera battery was trying to die, so I ended up with only a handful of photos. The real problem is there is so much life, where do you start?! The colors, the abundant life, wow. The dive went very well, met some new dive friends. The 2.5 hour drive north was worth it. I ended the trip with a post dive visit to Bastion Brewing for a really good burger, extra bacon, and a few fantastic ales. I look forward to my next trip there!
