Diving yesterday at Haigh Quarry was cold! It's about 40' in there, chilly even with the drysuit, particularly after you've been down for more that a half hour. First dive of the year, and it was great to get underwater again. Visibility was the best I've ever seen it, you could see the bottom of "the hole" from the edge of the cliff, that's looking downward from about 55' to 80'. I saw some sort of tank-treaded quarrying gadget I hadn't seen before, but other than that it was all pretty familiar. My new OMS gauntlet style gloves didn't live up to my high expectations.
