Hey guys

I SCUBA dive, and I'm going diving in Monterey tomorrow (closest dive site to my house). I'm really excited. It's SO FREAKING COLD all year round, so you have to where a 2 piece 7mm wet suit with a hood and gloves, plus the tank and everything else (BTW, that old TV show where that guy could sprint into the water wearing SCUBA gear? total BS. all that stuff weighs a ton). All that neoprene is pretty buoyant, so to counteract that I need another 28lb of weight. Everytime I go diving there, I always think to myself "seriously, is all this **** worth it? Waking up at 5AM, driving for 1.5hrs, lugging all this gear around?" Then I get into the water and I think "yes, it is." A lot of people like diving in warm water like in australia, but IMO, cold water is underrated. It's not as colorful, but the kelp forest is actually an amazing place.

Oh man sounds like diving around Seattle! Although places like Hawaii have tons of clear water and eye candy, there's something that's amazing about that kinda water. Have a good one, man!!! Cool

Sounds like a lot of fun! I was at the beach yesterday near some small kelp forests yesterday. It was Laguna Niguel though, so about 375 miles southeast? Unfortunately, no diving for me; just standing in the freezing water and getting sunburned with my friends. I've only been diving once, and I was sick at the time (yeah, I know, you're not supposed to go if you're sick Rolling Eyes ); but it was pretty awesome. Lots of great wildlife to check out. Hope you have a great time out there!

That sounds awesome, KS! Actually, Linda got her diving certification in Monterey many years ago.

We've heard about the record heat wave that you guys are currently dealing with, so maybe the water won't quite as cold.

We both absolutely love that area. You've got the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf, and lots of great beaches. I used to gig regularly at both the old Fort Ord, and the Navy Presidio down there.
