This was my second solo dive. I really enjoyed this dive! Went in and decided to take my time and look around. I cut through the "Mud Tunnel". I went up the right side of the merry-go-round. I still had 3200 psi left at the back so I decided to go into the "Florida Room". Got about 3/4 the way through and noticed that I had been in a little over a half hour and was getting close to having used 80 cu/ft of gas (my bail-out). I turned and went back on the other side of the merry-go-round, checking out all the jumps along the way. Saw a bunch of stuff I'd never noticed before. I played around in the cavern a lot during deco. There were a bunch of swimmers in the spring that kept swimming down to see me. I waved at them so they would talk about it on the surface so my wife would know that I was back. I saw Desiree jump in the water. When I came out, I handed one of my regs to Desiree and swam back into the cavern with her so she could see it. She thought it was real cool and wants to bring her gear next time.
