Aaron (AKA Octo) In the cold pacific. In this shot he was almost completely commando cause of a rip in his wetsuit. I don't know how he did not freeze his balls off. Literally:blackeye

Another star. Well that is the last of the ones for today. That took a hell of a while. I hope that you all enjoy them I sure know that my patients and I love to sit there and look at my screen saver scroll through the sets.

Enjoy, Cheers

Just drooling here Smooth One. All those food pics made me too hungry. Took my favorite gal down to Quinn's for Calamari.
Free immersion never occured to me in California. Some day I'll get to drop on the 90 foot ledge at Farnsworth again, pull down for about four minutes and see what really happens out there. Probably just scare myself though.
Aloha

Latest Pics...

Aquiles, Thank you for posting the photos and taking the pics!

An observant friend here pointed out an interesting kelp fact that can be seen here: the short ends of the kelp in a few of the shots...are actually the ragged ends of kelp fronds that have been chewed by abalone. Hungry buggers, eh?

The panoramic shot was our beach entry site for Sunday mornings service...er....dive.
It was well worth the effort.
I have my teachers here in SoCal to thank for introducing me to reef entries. :eek:
And my teachers in NorCal for coaching me through the event.
I learned to hunt, unshell, trim, pound, and cook abalone...not to mention observe the pros in action and have a great time. :cool:


Oh, BTW-- That is not a rock Aquiles is holding in the earlier pic: it is a scallop, which we ate minutes later. Delicious... very sweet.

PS. Bill, There's always next year!

Well it's a ways away. Abalone re-opens in April and the last couple Ab Grabs have been towards October as the weather gets a bit nicer, water-wise. But even then, I'd leave your new gun home. :cool:

3.

And that means in the shell. Transporting sliced-up abs will get you rightfully slammed.
