Abalone Campout Update August 26-28, 2011

by kreuter on September 8, 2011

Good friends with great fellowship.  Incredible and abundant food – including four different abalone dishes on Saturday evenings potluck.   Sunshine including some sunburns.  Fun times.  Decent ocean conditions.  29 abalone taken for the weekend.  Life does not get much better!!!  That summarizes the abalone campout at Ocean Cove Campground on August 26-28, 2011.  Vis was low, so we canceled the dive at Gerstle Cove Preserve.  Club members and non-members came for one night, both nights or just for the day on Saturday.  Everyone was welcome, and everyone is looking forward to the next trip!  A big thank you to Ken and Teresa L. for the incredible job they did to organize this trip and to provide the boat for Saturday’s diving adventures.
