Today I did my first Scubaland dive club event out at Windy Point Park. It was the "Spring Fling" to kick off another year of diving and, as advertised, it was windy.
This dive was interesting to me for a few reasons. My first freshwater dive, my first dive in Texas since moving here, and my first club dive with Scubaland.
This was a little richshaw provided at the park to carry gear from the parking lot to the dive site.
The freshwater bit was tricky but managable. I have never dove in freshwater before and I was wearing a rented 7 mm wetsuit. I had no idea how to weight myself. To make sure I sank I went with 10 lbs in addition to my 6 lb back plate. It turned out to be too much. After removing the air from my BCD I sank like a stone. Eventually I compensated with a BCD half full of air and got my buoyancy under control.
Here I am all geared up and ready to go.
The diving in Texas part was the most difficult, specifically diving in Lake Travis. Here's our rather rocky entry point.

The second dive of the morning at Yuca was great for large fish. It seemed like everytime I turned a corner or looked under a reef there was a relatively large fish hanging out.
The winds picked up and the weather cooled off considerably on the way back to the harbour. I threw on my well-worn green Quiksilver bunnyhug to heat up. Thanks to a special girl for giving this to me way back when.
It turned out that the next day the waters were too choppy and the authorities closed down the ports. This turned out to be my last dive in Cozumel on the trip. The diving was great and I'm looking forward to continuing exploring the islands dive sites next time.Click here to continue reading...

Today started with a dive at Planacar Gardens. The reef was teeming with life. I took a shot from a ways back to try to capture it. What looks like sediment clouding the reef is acutally thousands upon thousands of miniscule fish.
Here are more shots and a video of the reef life.

The dive wrapped up and we began our ascent. During the 3 minute safety stop this beast dropped by. He was floating ~15 feet below the surface so there was nothing else around for a size comparison.
