    Agreed!

    Had a lot of fun today. Conditions proved to be a bit better that I was expecting, and it seems that everyone had a really good time!

    Will have to do it again soon.


    I still have to download photos. Once I check those out, I'll do a full dive report in the main DDD forum.

    I agree, great having everyone come out and glad everybody enjoyed themselves. For those that did the portofino site afterward, would love to hear how that dive went. Till the next time. :)

    Most of the folks that continued to Portifino said the conditions were challenging because of the surf. Those who did 2 dives at Ft. Pickens made the right call. I wasn't able to make it, but have talked to many of the attendees as they return gear. Thanks to all who dove and helped to introduce others to our local shore dives.

    Dang, i hate that conditions weren't ideal for those that went. I'm looking forward to diving Portifino in the near future. Sure was a good burger at Paradise Inn though. Blue cheese and meat on a bun and good company. Always a good combo!:banana:

    Too bad about Portifino. Earlier that morning the surf looked rather inviting. Pity it didn't hold into the afternoon.
    I've put up the dive report in the main DDD forum, with a couple pics. Would have been more / better, but I made it halfway through the first dive before I realized that I had forgotten to attach the strobe sensor!
