If that was to be Peyton Manning's last game, nice
way to go out . . .
WHERE'S EL NINO???
- At the risk of sounding like a Climate Change Denier, 80º sure
doesn't seem like El Nino. And now they're talking Santa Ana winds?
In February?? Well, it actually DOES meet the standard of
"climate change" but the point is I thought we were going
to be getting pounded by rain the first three months of 2016. The
beach sure looked good over the weekend, at least in terms of surf
size, which was about ankle-slapper height. (Not sure what the viz
was.) So take advantage of conditions before the El Nino hits the
CLEANUP IN TWO WEEKS
- And one place you can do that is at the 35th Annual Avalon
Underwater Cleanup. Final preparations are underway and it's not too
late to sign up. In fact, it's also not too late to sign up as part
of the Reef Seekers group. We'll be a compact little bunch but we'll
take the early (6:15AM) boat over, dump our gear, I'll get everyone
signed in, and then we can have a fairly leisurely breakfast.
There's a briefing at 9AM, the diving takes place from 9:30-11AM,
and then we either store your gear or put you in a cab to the UW
Park where you can do some more dives. To join in on the fun, just
give us a call at 310/652-4990.
SCUBAPRO COMPUTER RECALL
- If you purchased either a Scubapro Galileo SOL or Luna dive
computer in the U.S. since May 7, 2015, stop using the computer and
send it back to Scubapro for replacement. There's a recall on. You
can read more about it here, including checking which specific
serial numbers are affected. If you dive with one of these units,
don't ignore this because the defect could compromise your safety
NEW UNDERWATER MUSEUM
- One of the highlights of our August trip to Isla Mujeres (still
room on the first week but the second week is full) is doing
two dives around MUSA, the Cancun Underwater Museum, created by
sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor. Jason's hard at work on another
underwater museum, this one is Lanzarote, Spain, and it looks really
interesting and extensive. (I got an e-mail from Jason the other day
about this and his biggest complaint is that the water's a lot
colder than what he's used to.) Some of Jason's works have a
political or environmental message behind them and I found "The
Raft of Lampedusa" (third pix below) to be especially moving.
You can find out more about Jason's work on his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Jason-deCaires-Taylor-150479558321853/)
as well as a nice video on CNN about this project and some others
Jason has done: http://edition.cnn.com/videos/travel/2016/02/03/lanzarote-europe-first-underwater-museum-sdg-orig.cnn.
Here's a taste of what it looks like:
And that'll do it for now. Have a great week and
let's go diving soon!!!
