Comments I was last down in Florida in June, the first time this year since recovering from my broken leg at the end of last year. I had a great trip to Malpelo at the end of July.

I flew down from Philadelphia to PBI on Tuesday. The plane was completely full. Airport at both ends was a breeze. Effortless car rental at National and got my shopping for the week down the street at Winn Dixie.

Wednesday September 13, 1st day of diving

I went out with Starfish out of Boynton Harbor Marina with Capt. Chris, mate Katie, Mati was diving also. Unusual for me, I dove with a buddy, Allan, a very good diver from NY who has been coming down to the area since 2004. It was a very sunny, hot day with seas around 2 feet.

1st dive was on the Castor. North current was ripping, visibility was 20-30 feet, water was 84 degrees. There were about 10-12 Goliath Grouper on the stern and a couple of small schools of horse eye jacks. A single Bull shark made a brief appearance swimming on the port side.

The 2nd dive was at Black condo. North current was more modest with a west pull, water was 85 degrees, visibility was 30-40 feet. Nothing special, a nice leisurely dive with all of the usual reef fish. A large southern ray swam slowly south under us.
