There has been a starfish die-off here. I do not think that the cause has been determined, but I suspect a pathogen is involved. Back in the '70's a bacterial disease decimated the...

That mola was not resting. It was a victim of the a-hole sea lions, who think it is fun to bite the fins off molas and then play with them like frisbees. This mola was too big for...

Aside from the connection problems mentioned elsewhere, I have had other reasons for not being around here: three weeks of the chest cold that would not die, followed by two weekends of company,...

Hey Nancy - I just saw these. They are worth bumping up.
Those are really good for the first time with a new camera.
Making urchin barrens look so nice bumps them up to the great category....
Guess the IT department is back to the SOPs:
IT: Submit a ticket online and I'll enter your issue into the queue.
Lowly User: But I can't get online.
IT: Submit a ticket online and I'll...

HA! I found you.
Nothing like going to visit someplace you've frequented for years only to learn that everyone has moved without telling you.
Was this a hint?
I had primarily been...
Time, time, and time!
I work so that I can dive; I can't dive because I'm working.
I need less work time and more dive time.
Working on it.
Battling a nasty cold has slowed me down. Fever on hottest day of the year was not fun!
Those are great Nancy!
I stopped by the beach at Marina/Seaside (end of Canyon del Rey for those who know the area) and saw lots of whales. They look much larger to the naked eye standing on the...

I have an Oceanic folding snorkel, which I reluctantly put in the thigh pocket of my drysuit when I am faced with a long surface swim through VERY THICK kelp. It gets the jobs done and folds up small.
Yes. There is an auto-save function.
I'm honestly baffled by the difficulty people are having - maybe it's because I am using a Mac now.
I bet the you were expecting the next installment of the TTXII saga. Well, so was I. But Scott and Nancy invited me to a truly special event. The Point Lobos Foundation, a non-profit group which...
Why was I expecting a list of bars?
Post vacation syndrome is a cruel thing.
Don't forget to check the lists of free books. I have years worth of free books loaded on my Kindle - some are classics some are contemporary. Just pick a genre and then check the free list on the...
No Farnsworth, but plenty of good stuff to come!
The cat behaved itself this year.
That is Mariann - Craig's wife. She came by to say hello and to drop off Craig's red high tops, so that they could join the trip.
When last we parted, the Truth Trippers had wound up another pre-party in Monterey and were preparing to head south to Santa Barbara. The well prepared travelers set out early and took the beautiful...
Was that taken anywhere near Longmont?
I used to go there on business a few times a year.
Stay dry! - Even if that requires a drysuit.
Try refreshing the view by pulling down. I'm looking at them on Tapatalk right now.
Doc's Pro Plugs have been a part of my dive gear for 13 years. The constant up and down of teaching brutalized my ears. (Little did I know that major sinus surgery was in my future.)
I won't even...
Linky thingies re-linked.
And so it begins...
For the past three years, the Truth Trips have begun with a pre-party in Monterey. This part of the event has grown each year, with this year's event bringing people from...
At this point in life, I'll take what I can get.
Now, swim faster dammit!

Also works on Safari.
Some cool footage there Mark. The sea lions were among my favorite. The conditions were really tough as the sea lions and divers competed to see who could kick up more of the bottom. I especially...
