June, 2011

Hello fellow Humboldt Skindivers,

I am looking forward to our June presentation on the Monterey Dives.  It will show a few pictures of what it looks like under the sea at the Breakwaters in Monterey.  Others will add their (our!) two cents worth about the club dive.  I’ll leave the details to the meeting… but it sure was an exciting time!!

Sadly, only five of us enjoyed the wonderful opportunity to visit Monterey that Charlie Notthoff’s generous hospitality provided.  Staying at his family’s home in Pebble Beach, we were able to dive ‘the Breakwater’ at Monterey Bay and the fantastic Point Lobos State Reserve.  While sea conditions at first appeared rough, these protected locations enabled us to access nice diving on Friday; and on Saturday, the clear and sunny weather afforded us the quintessential kelp forest dive.  The diving was absolutely stunning… and the fellowship was even better!!  Thank you, Charlie, for enabling us lucky few…

We are looking at a day-dive a lot closer in the month of June.  At this coming meeting we will discuss the options, including chasing crawdads (crayfish) in the fresh waters of Blue Lake before a brick-oven pizza….or ???  Bring your ideas and diving desires to the next meeting so we can make them happen.

Remember, “The world is run by the people who show up.”  Make sure YOU show up at 7 pm, Tuesday the 14th of June at Chan’s in Arcata.  See you there!   Cliff
