    So I thought I would head down to the shore and try a new spot. The drive down was uneventful I got to Lake Como in Spring Lake - ocean dive. There are supposed to be some rock formations off the shore.
    I started getting dressed and felt like I was in a fishbowl being watched... I assume these folks were some vacation divers who have never seen a northeast diver... They stopped their car and never got out - just staring as I put together my gear. Then I went to the side door to zip my dry suit I was solo and I have a rig that zips my back zip up - and they pulled the car up a couple parking spots to watch me. I went back to the trunk to finish getting suited up and they backed the car up to continue gawking a few parking spots away... It was very odd they never got out never said Hi - nothing... I finished up and walked down the beach and they left...
    And then the dive happened... I would have had more fun in a Portopotty - 1.5 foot viz down to 6 inches with a ripping current.... It made no sense to me - there were no waves and I was diving high tide... I thought the water had cleaned up from the weekend - I was so wrong... So I logged a 15 min 10 foot dive today... argh- I hope the viz clears soon... or I may be diving freshwater....
