Dianne and I Dive South of the Pelican Grand
Although we awakened quite early, neither Dianne nor I were eager to get to the beach this morning. It was cloudy out and had rained quite hard last night. The air temperature was a little colder than usual. We got to the beach around 9:00 am and had some trouble finding a place to park. We parked South of the Pelican Grand, really closer to Tower 19 than Tower 20. The water was warm and surprisingly calm, despite some breaking surf near the sand bar. We went East to the ledge starting mid-way between Towers 19 and 20. The visibility was not bad once we got on the reef. We saw two different Green Sea Turtles and I got video of each of them. We did not see much else, however. This was new and relatively uninteresting territory. We quit after only one dive.
