It feels like forever, since I’ve posted about Diving Goodness, so here it goes! Steve and I were packed and ready to go DIVING! We met Geneviève and Stéphane at Centeen Park, to do some skills, which went absolutely fabulous. We didn’t think the park would be too busy, since it is nearing the end of October, but we were wrong, wrong, wrong. We had to park quite a bit further than usual, but all was worth it.

As we were gearing up, an older fella walked into the park, and started playing the bag pipes. Ahhhhh… I loved it! Excellent gear-up music.

We got in, and went through a bunch of skills! *Enter GUE skills, here* 😛 Geneviève and Stéphane have worked so hard, and are ready for Cave 1! Way to go, friends!!!

Bottom Time: 56 mins.
Max. Depth: 28′
Water Temp.: 60F


Since we hadn’t been in the channel for a while, Steve and I brought our scooters out, and went for a second dive. w00t w00t! I was already a little chilly, thanks to a leak in my drysuit boot, but I wasn’t cold enough to turn the dive. Off we went!

Of course, I didn’t have my camera with me today, and… we found the carriage with the horse bones! We have only seen it once before, and this time, the skull was missing. There were still other large bones, and some of the teeth. By the looks of it, it was an older horsey. WHY COULDN’T I HAVE BROUGHT THE CAMERA??? I guess we’ll have to go on a mission, to find it, again! We continued on, through the channel, and had a fun drift, before we came back up. We overshot the exit, but only by a very small margin. What a fun day of DIVING GOODNESS!

Bottom Time: 44 mins.
Max. Depth: 105′
Water Temp.: 60F


Nary A Photo Was Taken

Today, Eric B., Jen, and I went out for a scooter run. Eric and I brought along enough bottles for us to do rotations, after our dive.

We scootered upstream for 30 minutes, then made our way into the channel. The visibility was much better in the channel, than in the shallows – thank goodness! There were spots where the current was absolutely ripping, and spots where it was non-existent. Go figure.

We drifted at 100′, for about 30 minutes, then made our way back up. We did a little deco, then some bottle rotations.

Hooray, for bottle rotations! Exciting, I know!

Bottom Time: 2 hours, 29 mins.
Max. Depth: 103′
Water Temp.: 68F

I can’t believe that I didn’t take a single photo of our dive, entry, exit, team, bottles, scooters, anything…

I shall use a picture from a previous post, then. We cannot have a post without pictures! Pics, or it didn’t happen! 😛

T2 = T minus 7 days…
