Harry and I, with Dionna out with a cold, decided to take Harry's boat out to Ballbuster considering the great conditions. The sun was shining, the water was flat, and the parking lot was half empty. What more could you ask for? Harry's boat fired up with a hitch and we motor'd out to Ballbuster with the wind in our hair/toques. I took my video out as it hadn't been in the water for a while and was glad to see the vis was cooperating. We did a couple of loops of the pinnacle with Harry posing for some shots as I tried to keep a steady hand. Video is posted here: http://mlloyd.homedns.org/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=61
Or just go to mlloyd.homedns.org and click on the video on the left hand side. After the dive we chowed down on sandwiches at the deli and prepared for our second dive at Trevors/Aumentos. Vis was comparible to the last dive and gave us a bit of time to brush up on our tech 2 bottle juggling while coming back up the anchor. Great diving... I love the California winter !
