I just got back from FLorida and wanted to share some pics from my trip

The current was screaming the day I took these.

Very nice pics!! Where did you go? I haven't done much salt water diving at all, but since I live in Florida, I think I need to go where you went ASAP!! :)

My trip was to Fort Lauderdale Florida. I dove as far north as Palm Beach and as far south as the Keys.

I am returning this Summer to dive nonstop for another week.

Water was in the low 70's in Florida. But on Saturday and Sunday I am diving Monterey and I will get to experience some 40 degree water!

5mm hoodie vest, 5mm sleeved jacket and a 7mm full suit. Drysuit is high on my list of stuff to get though.

Got to love the weather here. I went diving two nights ago with some manatees, coolest dive yet. Love that night diving! You can also see great stuff like that with a snorkel if you know where to go! I dive 15 feet from shore and see some of the most amazing things. Great pics, makes me want to go out there tonight!

Bring yourself a nice large thermos of hot water, dump it inside your wetsuit before the dive. It'll prevent that nasty cold water from getting in when you jump in the water :D

Well the Monterey dive is being postponed. 25-30 mph winds from the SE. Swells up to 10 ft. Add in frigidly cold water and rain (lots of rain) and I think I will wait untill the storm passes.

Billsreef, I like your idea for using the hot water. Nothing like ice water running over your body when you first enter the water.

I miss Florida.........
