[Memo]
This was Jason's final checkout dive and my 400th dive. I can't believe I forgot my watch (to properly record this dive)! :-/ Jason did better on the communication and stayed closer to me this dive. Again, he was very comfortable and did great on his buoyancy. We dropped to the bottom of the cavern and cupped our lights. Since we were the only ones in the water (and we were staging off the bottom) and there was no one silting things up, the entrance was beautiful.

We worked our way up the ceiling this time, checking out the fossils along the way. I showed Jason some of the big sand dollars, the mastadon bone and the whaile bone. I also pointed out many of the statues. We took another extended safety stop, just hanging out, playing around the platform and hanging on the ceiling.
