    We had another great meet and dive on August 9th at Lake Murray. The weather was great as it wasn’t extremely hot for August. We had an awning setup and with the slight breeze we were very comfortable even while out of the water.

    With the sparse membership we only logged 2 dives, but there were pretty lengthy dives. The water temp was great and was still a toasty 79 degrees at 40′. The vis wasn’t as accommodating though. As one member said it was like driving through a winter fog. There were patches where the vis was quite good, and other places where the vis was little more than zero. Overall we probably had somewhere in the neighborhood of 3′. Not so good and I think the rain storm that went through the area 2 days prior had a little something to do with that.

    Topside ya’ll missed out on a great watermelon. Malibu Tinman brought a huge watermelon and we gorged ourselves on that while telling tales of the sea.

    The next dive is going to be scheduled as a dive and cleanup, so keep your eyes peeled. This will be a great opportunity for everyone to get together, diver and non-diver for fun, fellowship and a chance to make both the topside and underwater water environment a little better for everyone.

    I was at Murray on Sat. Jul 12. Vis was 3-5 ft. very consistent. Although, at this time of year, I consider anything better than 6 ft to be excellent; so I suppose I have to classify 5 ft as good.
    btw, I classify 2-1/2 ft vis. as the absolute minimum for my tolerance/comfort level. Any lower than that and I just don’t enjoy diving. Just my opinion.

    Dove Saturday, June 28th. Surface temp was 84 on my ‘puter, and very tolerable down to 40 feet. Vis was variable: about 20 feet by the shore (?!?!?) down to hand-holding in a few places. Generally we had 6-12 feet around the platforms near the ramp and west of the tower.
