Well they have done it... Went to dive Marineland today and was met by a rent-a-cop at the bottom of the road to the parking lot.. "Not allowed on the site, construction zone" I wasn't very happy about this and did by best to talk my way in... No luck..Did my best to explain how my use of 10'x5' in the far end of the parking lot really wasn't too big of a deal.. Nope... We were waiting for so friends to join us for the dive at the top of the driveway... The rent-o-cop leader drives a truck up to use and starts asking us questions... (I don't think they like divers :( ) Anyway he tells us that the site will be closed for 1-3 months... ouch.. I asked about what the costal commision had to say about this.. he said that the company had "insurance issues" with people being on site and the commision agreed.. (understandable)

So we hoffed it down cardiac hill and freedove the area.. It turned out to be a rather nice dive.. 10-30' vis.. nice and warm.. That was until we had to walk up that hill... Then Marineland started to sound much better...
