It is time to focus more on enjoying diving, not just teaching others. I love teaching. But, I really need to dive more just 'for fun'. Aug 16, 2019

      And, another dive 'season' begins. The first OW work this year was a cold quarry. I am already looking forward to warm ocean diving.

      Finally, it feels like Fall. Time to stretch out the drysuit.
