Dive Day 2

Three ab pearls Doug found in one old abalone

Doug was still dubious about our report on yesterday's afternoon conditions, but decided to join us for another late day effort diving into the low tide. We stopped at his place where he showed us the latest additions to his extraordinary abalone pearl collection. Then out to the cove.

First - we had to get the weight belt right for the newbie.

Then back down the hill...

... then into the cove.

An interested local keeps an eye on the proceedings.

By the time we got in through the low tide kelp...

... Doug had already explored the cove three times.

We found a great new spot...

Harlan checks it out...

... up close and personal

(someday I'll get a good picture of one of these)


Harlan surfaces with his first ab

A good day to dive.

A mountain of abalone. Between us - three nines, four eights, and a seven.

Got some decent video, and will add here at some unspecified future date.
