Ice Diving Weekend Get Together ~ Day Two

24 01 2009

Sunday, January 18th, 2009 ~

We all got up early, put together our gear, loaded it up, and headed to Timmy’s. Timmy’s was a good option for breakfast, seeing as we didn’t really have time for a sit-down breakfast. We had to get to the water.. er… ice.

Our convoy was on its way, and we actually stayed together, on the ride up to the quarry. Once there, we saw that our hole from yesterday was still open, with exception to our little runway path. Steve recut it for us. It was much easier to exit that way, than to have us all get out like beached whales.

 

We decided to bring scooters today. One of our friends wanted to try one, so we brought them to play with.

 

Steve handed his “Oreo scooter” over to Richard, and I handed mine to Steve. I didn’t really have much need for it, while I was taking photos.

We didn’t really do much on this dive, other than play around and get some pictures. Frankie also took some video.

Once we got our gear off, we were pretty much popsicles. I did get a few shots of us out of the water too…

Steve was hiding from the camera at this time…

 

So it was yet another fantastic weekend of icicle diving goodness. We headed off to a restaurant to warm up and get some food in our bellies. Ice diving sure burns off alot of calories!

It was great to see friends that we don’t see as often in the winter, and good to get in the water! It was also great having Richard along, all the way from Seattle! You’re always welcome, Richard!
