Deco Profile:

I decided to spend my Birthday out with the BAUE gang doing some R3 diving. We motored out to look for an appropriate site for both Recreation and R3 diving profiles. First site was Sobrantes. This got vetoed due to swells and crashing waves along the shoreline. We motored to Flinstones and dropped the anchor. The recreation divers got in first because of the need to stage the R3 dives for added safety. I buddied up with Andrew Hill as my primary buddy. Paul Festa and Christophe Beraud as another R3 team. We did our checks and away we go. We saw the usual suspects, lingcod, cabezon and the additional surge made it a E ticket ride. A seal lion buzzed us on deco. The second dive was at Local's Ledge. We saw a wolfe eel, octopus and several nudibraches. Thanks to Escapade gang, although I'm not a meat eater, the reeses peanut butter cups and cookies were superb.

Dive 3: Peter B's for Lunch, Fun and Laughter about old stories. Thanks for a nice Birthday Celebration.

P.S Thanks to Josh Maxwell. I didn't have any rashes on my neck!!! It must have been your magical touch. LOL
