|The plans for the weekend were pretty ambitious. We had T1 trip on Saturday and T2 trip on Sunday plan on the Escapade. |
We meet at the dock on Saturday morning and drove out to Point Pi~nos. The moment we try to go south we were confronted by a very strong south wing :-(. We decided to save the mix for another day.
Due to Saturday condition and Sunday forecast Captain CAP decide to call Sunday off. It's a dynamic environment after all....
On Saturday we went for breakfast at The breakfast club, then a trip to the sport center for a nice swim, where I shared my lane with a 75yr old gentlemen than was making me work hard to keep up. It was inspiring to swim with him :-)
Sunday afternoon CAP call me to see if I want to test our new Santi undies. We didn't have anybody to drive the boat so we just went under the boat and tested the gear. We saw tons of Hermisendas, a lot of hermit crabs, and two very cool sarcastic fringed-heads on inside the holes of a lead-acid battery. If they live there it might be a great place to get video of them. After a few minutes they didn't mind our lights any more. We found another one just under the boat, but didn't want to interact with us much.
So after all .... we went diving on the Escapade, well under the Escapade ;-)
