    Yuck. Glad I got out last Saturday.

    NE swell from the winter storm they’re getting up North is my guess.

    We went out also, but the peace of mind and patience from those dives are used up but Wednesday... Thursday if it is an easy week. I need a refill of patience to face Mondays.

    We're going to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary on Saturday on the Left Coast. It's also a great place to get an injection of patience from nature. :)

    Nope!! No one's going out this weekend. We've had a good streak of good weekend weather since Thanksgiving so I won't complain too much. But like you said, my patience is already used up from last weekend and I'm ready to get back in the water. Maybe a good weekend to hit the bridge....

    I try to explain this to divers that read simple Text based forecasts like windfinder, etc.
    What ever they say,,,,,You are not going to hide from a 45 foot tall wave's effects.

    You are right, but what if one wishes really really hard?

    If I don't go diving, there's land-based projects that need attention. I'm an adult from Monday to Friday, as a new grandmother I should be exempt of adulting on weekends.
