Okay, I know that it's been ages since I last posted here. Two teenage children plus one younger one, and having gotten back into scuba diving with a new dive buddy have done a lot to take up most of my free time lately. Not to mention the fact that I also changed jobs recently. The problem with most of my dive buddies, my wife included, is that after a while they get tired of diving the cold waters of Southern California, or they just have enough of having to put on those claustrophobic 7mm wet suits in order to enjoy Jacques Cousteaus's world. Fortunately my new dive buddy is just as keen and enthusiastic as me. Unfortunately he works most weekends, so most of our diving is at night. The advantage of that is no sunburn, no crowds and that the *bugs* come out at night. In fact today is the start of lobster season Are there any other divers out there? Here's a couple of pics. Just before a night dive in Redondo Beach a few months ago and my new regulator which replaced my sturdy reliable *jawbreaker* from 25 years ago. Edited to rotate photo.
