when i left my place it was a mear 17 degrees outside. and when i got to whidbey island it was no warmer. as cold as it was, i was amazed that the roads where not one big sheet of ice! the vis was better than i thought it would be, my dive buddy said it was worse than he thought it would be. since i got my dive light back, i was eager to try it out, and in some places i needed it. it was like giving a child an old toy and telling him/her it is new. :) when i got home it was only about 24 degrees. my wife and children loved the pictures i took there. one of these days i might take my brother and sister in law there so we can dive it ( well for me it`ll be again ).
