A Crystal Clear Day

RyanandJacobdiving-7772September 21, 2014

We had one of our best beach days yet this weekend! The weather has been just incredible and the visibility in the water has been pretty much as good as it gets. The tide was really low today and was perfect for diving and tide pool hunting. Ryan went out with our friend Jacob. Ryan scuba dived today and all of his gear worked well, he just had a little hard time with getting his weight right, but other than that his set up worked well. They saw some great things out there today: sea turtles, a massive bat ray, and a small octopus.

We found a lot of huge hermit shells filled with these large mussels. Everyone got a lot of sun, a little too much. We didn’t expect to have such a fun time and if you spend the whole day at the beach it definitely shows apposed to two or three hours.

  1. Oh-oh! Another nudist? I thought Jude was the only one! Funny. That Royal sure has the expressions! The blue of the ocean is so amazing! The seashell a huge score! Glad you’re out to the beach and having some family relaxation. HB, you need to get your matchmaking hat on and find that Jacob a sweet girlfriend. He’s a nice-looking young man!
