|A better report - still no pix|

First off the GPS numbers were to a bunch of sand.
E and I went down to find a very cragged volcanic area.
We and I ditched the E the photog and did a big arc across the nearby sand for no reason that I could think of. Then he wrote on a wetnotes that he wanted to go into the shallows.
When we got there there was a kelp forest in sand. HUGE holdfasts gripping who knows what. There were four in a line about 5 feet apart. They looked like welcoming sentinels to a new land.
They were much like the kelp at Malaga, but were spaced out more. No tangles.
Well that was it for me time to bolt for the anchor line. Where is that confounded anchor line anyway? Oh well, I did my stop sitting on a pinnacle that was at 17 FSW.
Then there is the SLOOOOWEST 3 minutes of all time. I swear that we perceive time differently when off gassing.
Then theres apprehension as your face breaks the water. How close will I be? Oh good I am up current and 100 feet away!
Now I have to practice lying to Sue...
I get back and E is already aboard.
I get on board with my well rehearsed pack of lies.
Sue:"How was the dive?"
So much for Jeff the fibber.
Anyway I call this one of my best dives ever.
Then it was Victory at Sea all the way home.
Wish you were there!
