It’s Winter At The Quarry!

Ahh… winter diving goodness! It’s that time of year again, where we have to have the chain saw on stand by, and make sure we have layers of clothing in the van. A bunch of us were meeting at the quarry, for a leisurely Sunday dive!

The roads were a little slippery, and I’ve always thought it was a bit odd to have speed limits, where there is 40 km/hr difference, between max and min speeds. I just labeled it as a highway gradient factor…

When we arrived, we had to go through the back entrance, as the front gate was closed. The old, abandoned buildings are pretty interesting to see.

It was snowing at a pretty good rate as well, which made for a nice shot of the quarry.

We geared up, and in we went. We had two cameras in the mix today, and were hoping to get some fun shots! Kelly, Dave, Andy, and Serge were in town! Steve, Jay, Eric, and I were also in the mix.

The gang…




Kelly, trying out a scooter!


Me.. not sure what I was looking at…

Eric found a friend…

Steve, issuing a ticket!

I caught Jay in the act!

Steve was also showing us his acrobatics!

Which way to cavez??

We made our way back in, and poor Andy was having issues with his gloves, that he was trying out today.

We did have alot of fun, and I don’t think the quarry will be open for very much longer!
