Millbrook Quarry Poker Run

If I’m not too late, I’m headed over to the shop to register for the poker run they are having this weekend. I’ve never done one of these, so it should be interesting. The prizes are gift certificates to Adventure Scuba. I’ve blown so much cash there already that I would certainly welcome some free goodies! I’ll try to post some pictures of the even tomorrow night…

Open Water in Cozumel

Still a little late getting these pics out, but I had a LOT of stuff going on back at work.  It seems that when you are gone for a week, stuff starts piling up!  These are pictures taken with my SeaLife Reefmaster Mini.  Some may be a little grainy, but I’m still figuring it all out 🙂

I have to say that Cozumel is the best diving location I’ve seen yet.  The water was a color of blue that I had never seen before.  All in all, it was pretty amazing.  You can see the pics here.

Cozumel Cenote – Down in a Hole

I finally got all the video and pics together into one place.  For those of you who don’t know, a cenote is a type of cavern system.  Its more like a sink-hole that has a vast network of caves and caverns.  Well, in my recent trip to Cozumel I finally got to dive one.  It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen.  I gotta’ say, it definitely beat open water diving for me.  Now it looks like I need to think about cave certification in the future… You can see the video here or browse the photos here.

Lake Rawlings – A Clear Quarry??

After diving in Millbrook Quarry for so long, I was pleasantly surprised – one could say shocked – at the clarity of the water in Lake Rawlings.  It used to be a limestone quarry I think, but now its a scuba park.  Its not very deep (65ft) but there is ALL KINDS of stuff to see and do down there!  Living in Northern VA, its a bit of a haul to get there, but it certainly is worth it.
