Couldn't get moving this morning, finally left, drove for about 45 minutes before realizing I'd forgotten all kinds of stuff. Got lunch and headed back. Tomorrow!

Freaky. I don't think I want to get into deep sea scuba after all. Surfing, on the other hand...

Most of the really weird-ass deep-sea creatures you see exist at a depth that would crush a human body. Probably not going to run into an anglerfish on a scuba dive.

I fail to see how deep-sea surfing would be much different.
