Release Date 7/9/2015

Went paddling under the Atlantic Highlands Bridge.

The plan was to play in the heavy current under the bridge. We arrived much earlier than the predicted peak flood and parked out on Sandy hook near the campground. We then paddled out to the East to the end of the Hook, then back the other way up to the bridge to catch the current.

There was a decent flood current, maybe 3 knots, and bridge made some nice eddy lines to fool around in, but the lack of bottom structures prevented any standing waves or other play features. 

It was a good day for paddling, cloudy early on which kept the heat at bay.

Truth: Storms go Away.

We went diving for fossils in Venice Florida.

this was a really fun dive trip. We found several hundred sharks teeth that were between one and three million years old.

Its amazing that they are so plentiful after people have been diving for them and collecting them for something like 20 years in a really small area just 4 or 5 miles long and 1 mile wide.
We were really close to the shore on all the dives!

We did two days a diving with a lot of goofing off and bbq eating in between.

At the hotel we came across the baby armidillo. It was about the cutest thing you can imagine.

The earth is really old.
