Just read the article and think it is great!! I grew uo in San Diego but never took up scuba. Spent most of my time on top surfing and sailing. It wasnt until this year, 30 years after I left the beach, that I got my OW cert at 48 years old, in North Pole AK. Our open water dives were done the 1st and 2nd of June, the water temp was 40 degrees! We dive every chance we get and I am returning to San Siego for my 30 year reunion and looking forward to diving there. I regret having missed all those years I could have been diving...but the best is yet to come!! And yes there is a North Pole Alaska and Santa does live here!!
