    Howdy (as they say here in Texas.....hehehehe)


    I am FINALLY coming home since ii left Florida almost two years ago and I'm ready to dust the crud out of my gills.

    I will actually be back (I'll be at my mom's house in Fort Pierce, about an hour North of WPB) tomorrow night and would love to dive some time Friday or Saturday. Jupiter is my first choice. Anyone game?


    I dont even know who, what , or where anymore. I usually hook up with Captain Paul on the Temptation or Blue Tang if they aren't full... Anyone know the scoop on Jupiter? BTW... How is the weather and the sea down there?

    The seas dried up while you gone. Hole-In-The-Wall is now about a three mile hike through the Jupiter pass. It's strange to set up a picnic on a spot that used to be 130' underwater at one time.

    I actually dove Jupiter this past Sunday. Weather was perfect and the seas were pretty calm. Viz was terrific (top to bottom pretty much), current was there but not too strong at all, and my dive computer read water temp at 75 degrees. Still seemed a bit chilly. Saw a TON of stuff. Weather has pretty cooperative as of late.

    Jupiter Dive Center is an outstanding op out of there, if you've never been out with them. I'm going back out on April 19th for their afternoon and full moon night dives. It was easy diving, you couldn't ask for better. :)

    Vickie--
    Hey you!! Hope you're well; things here are as busy as typically always!

    I can't dive this weekend; work and other life nonsense still getting in the way, but I bet you'll find someone who can. I'm sad to say I can't even tell you what the forecast weather/seas are to be for the weekend.......

    Jenny's got it right, Paul and his op are no longer; the Temptation now belongs to JDC. I will be straight, I've had good experiences with them since he's gone, though I know your history with them.....maybe check with the guys at ScubaWorks and see if they can recommend anyone else?

    How long are you in town?
