    First Salt Water Dive in a while 3 Torpedoes

    I have not had the most exciting year scuba diving as work and life seem to have a hold on me. Why couldn't I have won mega millions? I have found some nice shards and checked out areas I always had on my radar and found just enough to want to try them again. This past Sunday I decided to go...

    Great Shard!

    I was out walking the tidal flats in the rain in NH this past Sunday rather than be warm n comfy inside. I'm usually looking for marbles as they seem to work their way to the surface. I find all sorts of broken shards of ceramics and glass bottles, pipes etc. I have found some nice whole ones...

    Almost cold enough for diving!

    Sounds crazy but this is when I really begin to look, Woke up it was 11degrees out. Driving to one of my favorite spots could see lots of sea smoke in the early morning sun. Sea smoke is when the ocean waters are warmer than the air, the colder it is the more smoke there is. There was only one...

    Couple of Flounder a Cool Pipe and a HEART BREAKER!

    So its summer in Maine and all the yahoos are boating,fishing, most of the freshwater is murky with freakishly large snapper turtles swimming around.
