Classes are done. Begin the dives on sunday. I get to enjoy the balmy waters of Dutch springs in September. I can't wait. Serously, I can't. This is going to be a long week. And I have to work on Sat. so it's a 6 day work week at that.

Your almost there. Dutch Springs is best in September. Still nice outside and the water temps are as good as they get. The thermoclime is at or below the platforms.

Have fun.

Well, 3 of 5 are in the book. Was a great day under the water. Surface water was 72 deg. @ 60' it was 62 deg. Thermocline was at about 42'. Mask removal is done, I don't think I'll be practicing that skill all too often. Mustang, I'll be back there on the 28th to do dives 4 and 5. YOu still planning on being there? NOw to go order some gear...

Hi maddhadder. Congrats on completing your first couple of certification dives. I was at Dutch Saturday, with some friends. It was a little chilly below the thermocline, but man, what a great day for diving. Seventy degrees and a brilliant bright blue sky. Gotta get those dives in before the cold gets here.
