Ice Diving Weekend Get Together ~ Day One

23 01 2009

Saturday, January 17th, 2009 ~

Plans had been in the works, for some friends to come and stay for the weekend, for ice diving. The house started to fill up on Friday night, and one friend was picked up from the airport. It was turning into an event!

Saturday morning, another friend arrived, and we headed up to the quarry. We decided to cut a bit of a runway up to the beach, so that exiting the water wouldn’t be such a task for everyone.

We geared up and in we went. There were eight of us, and I tried to get shots of everyone (ones that turned out).













Jen, playing with the wild life…




Silhouettes from the Sub…


We had alot of fun swimming around, and placing “sea creatures” in each others’ manifolds… read… I had alot of creatures in my manifold.

Here’s a group shot, with Kevin caught in the act… taken by Steve…


Bottom Time ~ 61 minutes
Max. Depth ~ 56′
Water Temp. ~ 39
Vis. ~ Wicked!

When we got out, our gear and drysuits quickly turned to popsicles, so we quickly put everything away, then jumped back in the water, to defrost the zippers on our drysuits.

It was then off to Jean Burger for Poutine!

We all came back to our place, brought the gear in, and later had a nice turkey dinner!
