Blue bra decorated with a scuba theme

The CDC’s Bra-Vo! Entry

The Thousand Island Arts Center is having their Bra-Vo Show starting September 14, 2102. Exhibitors decorate bras (some are really out of this world), and people bid via a silent auction for them. We won one two years ago and have redonated it (the Kissing Fish). I have made a new one on behalf of the club. It is called “Diving the Valley (the Seaway Valley that is),” and it is dedicated to the hope that a cure may be found so that every day can…

August 11th 2012 Dive on the AE Vickery

Hello CDC, We dove the A.E. Vickery on August 11th, 2012.  We dove off Ken Kozin’s very comfortable boat 2-Dive-4.  There was a morning dive and a noon Dive.  A total of 9 divers and one recently certified Barbie diver (look for her in the pictures) hit the waters. The water was in the 70s and the vis was not as good as it was in July, but it was still good enough to enjoy a great dive on the Vic.  Can you have a bad dive on the Vic?  The Vickery has seen better days and…

June 16th 2012 Dive on the Islander

Hello CDC, we had 9 divers show up for the June 16th, 2012 dive on the Islander!! We had some of the regular faces plus some new members that showed up to dive.  The water is warming up and is now in the 60s. There was a bit of boat traffic that day and I think there were at least 2 other classes going on at the Islander while we were there.  The ramp was more congested than an LA freeway during rush hour at…
