Flew down to PBI on 6/21, plane was completey full. Took off 2 hours late due to thundestorm in FL and ground delay. Car pick up at National was effortless.

These are my first dives since breaking my left femur in October 2022. A long story and a difficult recovery.'

Day 1 diving, Thursday June 22

I went out with Jupiter Dive Center, Republic IV with Capt Brad, guide Steve, and mate Blaine. I was a bit nervous but turned out much better than expected. No problems on the boat or underwater.

The first dive was at Loggerhead. What did we see, well, many, many Loggerheads, at least a dozen or more. We also saw a few Reef Sharks and large Green Morays, 2 Goliath Grouper, and a solo Hawksbill. The treat was a nice Lemon Shark that joined us at the safety stop for a minute or so. Water temp was 80, vis 40-50 ft.

The second dive was at the wreck of the Gulfland/Norman Wreck (see: GulfLand Wreck (aka Gregory Norman Wreck) ). A mediocre site with a really beat up wreck Water temp 84, vis 10-15 ft, less when the OW class kicked it up. Only a few Snook, a lot of bait, and some hunting Jacks. I would not go back to this site.

Going out in Boynton tomorrow...
