Three divers were also rescued from Ocean Cove yesterday....all clinging to a sinking kayak.
Two more died and one critical of the coast of Washington. This weekend as well.
Very tragic weekend for the west coast.

one of my local kayak friends here lost a very good long time diving friend up there 5-7 years back and stopped going back since..
He wants to go again to teach me -but in closer and get easier ones...
told me the story otw one day last year...tripped me out bad to hear him tell the story--He could not help him -guy never came up--find him,and guys with tanks had to go get him out-family ruined by it...not good
We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.

People arenít supposed to look back. Iím certainly not going to do it anymore.Ē

FUCK!!!!

I just found out I knew one of the divers that died yesterday  :smt010

Really nice guy I met on a diving weekend with a big group. We rented a couple of houses and dove Van Damme.

It was an awesome weekend.

Super sad unpleasant way to go.  I started diving when I was 16 with my brothers and some friends.   We were all over it back then, constantly in the water.   Now I'm 51 (the baby of 6 in our family) and my remaining brothers are in their 60's, out of shape and still want to abalone dive.   I have not found the heart to tell them I don't feel safe with them anymore, but this year is the year.  Be safe.

So around 3PM ish yesterday I'm cleaning my ab that I harvested from Fort Bragg on Saturday. I prepped it like I always did the way Tae taught me.

He owned a Sushi restaurant in Dublin called Amakara. That weekend in May 2012 he showed me how he would prep it for sashimi and other dishes that I still use to this day.

I've only seen him once after that fun filled weekend at the parking lot of Van Damme in 2013 where we greeted each other with a hug. He had finished with diving for the day and I was just starting.

Yesterday as I prepped my ab I remembered him commenting on my snoring that weekend. I just kind of chuckled to myself.

It's eerie to think that he was probably diving when I was thinking of him.  :smt010
