Sorry we missed you Ted, if we had known you were there we would have looked for you. Were probably going back next sunday, maybe we will see you then!!

Was it crowded? I'd like to get some more diving in. Of course my boys' baseball schedule permitting! Sounds like it was a great weekend at Millbrook.
Cool pic of the motorcycle!!

From what beach do you dive?

I was there on Saturday doing rescue training - it wasn't crowded at all. We were on beach 1. It was my first time there so I don't know what normal is but the visibility was pretty bad for the first 15' or so. It was 46 degrees at the platform.

Burrrrr!!! Last place I dove was Key Largo and the water temps were a little warmer!! Glad to hear it wasn't crowded.

Sorry Ed. The top 15-20 probably will be but I bet the 30' platforms will stil be in the 40's and LOW 40's below below them.

I'm going to be there Saturday with a Dry Suit student - I'll let you know an update.

Side issue - you oughta think about taking the trip to Dutch Springs on the 16th vs Millbrook. DUI is having their demo days that weekend and for $10/advance or $15 on site (plus DS admission) you can dive any of their suits and get a free lunch.

Not a chance it will be any warmer by then. Except like Ted said the 1st 10'-15'. But still a good dive especially dry:smiley36:, oh that's right your still wet. I dove with 4 different people over the past two weekends, who dove wet, they did ok. Just no long stays at 85'!! By the way I'll be there on the 16th, so look me up at beach 2, or 21/2. Maybe we can get a dive in. Be good to see you again.

Eric, I'll be down about 8:30. I'll be parked by the trail down to beach 21/2. I drive a chevy 4x4 crew cab, grey, if you don't remember. It has been a while.
