Friday was Jeff
's 30th, for which we had a lan party
. Save for three levels of Turtles in Time, we exclusively played the Heroes of the Storm beta. Breaks featured Round Table, pool time, and fireballs.
Saturday: Scuba rental, work, McCarthy party
Anything but a mellow day. Brian
and Jamie's barbecue was pretty awesome.
Sunday: Coronados dive
I joined Shane
and Margaret on a dive trip to the Coronados Islands
. I had heard good things. Unfortunatley, we picked a weekend with considerable wind and turbulent underwater conditions. The conditions left it just like any other San Diego spot.
I'm 0/2 on underwater flash
. Last time my used Ikelite flash leaked. This time I used the Nikon speedlight/housing combination but it stopped working very quickly (no leaks). Ugh.
- Quite a few schools of fish.
- A sea lion just hanging out at 60' like it's no big deal.
- A big ol' sea slug.
- A dead fish covered in shelled creatures.
- Irony, in that Shane had seaweeds grabbing his dive knife straps.
Oh and Nathan
wanted a few frames with Whitney for a Mothers' Day gift.
