2015 Opening Weekend Abalone Campout

by kreuter on April 6, 2015

Napa Valley Divers ventured off to the Sonoma coastline for the opening weekend of the 2015 abalone season, camping at Ocean Cove Campground.  Nine families joined in, ranging from 10 months to 65+.  The ocean calmed down just in time and offered up it’s bounty to seven divers taking a total of 18 abalone.  We had some wind during the days, cool nights, beautiful sunsets every evening and a short rain fall on Sunday morning.  The Santa Rosa Democrat was out on Friday morning to do a feature article on “The allure of abalone“, and featured NVD past president, Jon Niebling on the cover of it’s Saturday newspaper.  As usual, there was way too much food and good times had by all attending.  Watch for the clubs next campout and activities.
