Another great dive to end this weekend! We were like the second vehicle at the park. We took our time, geared up and got in. We didn't bother taking a primary reel since both Billy and I have been here so many times, we could find our way out blindfolded. :-)

Same drill as the rest of the weekend. I lead, Billy followed and took pictures. I carried a slave strobe and looked for good photo ops. The pictures we took on this dive came out great! I think we're finally starting to get the hang of this! ;-)

We went down the main line to the Merry-Go-Round. We took a right and worked our way around. As we made it near the back side, I noticed that I was starting to rack up some deco. We had really spent a lot of time stoping to take pictures. At the back side of the Merry-Go-Round I signaled "deco" to Billy and gave him the "turn around" sign. He agreed, so we proceded around the other side of the circuit, heading back toward the exit.

We stopped several more times along the way for photo ops. I kept watching my deco racking up and started to make bigger kicks in between stops. :-) After we got back up the chimney to shallower water I didnt mind the stops because they ate into my deco. By the time I hit my deco stop, I only had 12 minutes. Billy stayed with me, taking more pictures. I found a nice comfy rock and took a little nap.
