    Hi Clay, just a practice dive trip to Santa Rosa NM, between Amarillo and Albuquerque. It's a 5,000 ft elevation dive, 61 degrees to 81 feet, spring-fed bell-shaped ancient volcano vent, darker in the lower portion. Went with a vacation diver who has dived with me there several times before and a newbie whom we watched closely. Went thru a dozen eggs - playing with the yokes, but she enjoyed breaking the yokes for some reason? :confused:

    I have a few dozen pics I'll post on gallery as soon as TechAdmin return from DEMA and adds more space to my account. Not great diving or great pics, but good practice and fun - both good reasons for both. :D

    Yeah, I just go with the automatic settings and automatic Adobe Elements 3. If I add any DandyDon touches, it never goes well.

    With DEMA on, it was nearly a private practice pit. Never more than one row of divers' car parked at the edge. :11: Loved that, and with so few students bouncing off the bottom, good viz. My strobe failed, but got some ok pics to post later . (see above)

    All of Stella's tanks are due for Viz this month, and we had hell with bad o-rings!! We ended up testing each tank in her fill room and rejecting half. The city has an ambitious improvement plan just announced in the new paper, so things will be changing a lot there. They know that the Blue Hole divers are their biggest repeat asset. :thumb:

    I've always washed mine in the bathtub. I hang the BC and suits up in the garage to dry, but with this big bar in the guest bathroom and my guest gone, it was too convenient. I'll store them across the hall in the scuba room this week, sometime. :wink:

    You never take eggs in, break them open and play with the yokes? It's something to do....

    She enjoyed bursting the yokes, kinda' like some people are with balloons? The fish love the eggs and the crawdads eat the shells.
