Wednesday, July 5, 2017:  Deep Diver Paula persuaded Skipper Mark to take her out on the Minnow on Gilbert lake.  
She donned SCUBA diving gear to look for lost items at a neighbor's dock.
Paula then ran a mental checklist for her gear and tested the water before taking the plunge.


In the water she went from the bow of the Minnow. 

Then she descended to the depths of the lake.

Meanwhile, the skipper was topside watching for boat traffic with a SCUBA dive flag visible to all in the area. 

Well, only two Kayakers came by.  Not a problem.
Then Paula was up to orient herself.  She was snagged in weeds.  She isn't called "Swamp Thing" for nothing!
Then she needed a tow to another part of the lake. 
The safest way was to run the boat in reverse so there was no chance of her being caught in the engine propeller.

Finally, she ran low on air and was up for the day.
All smiles after a dive in the lake. 

Quote of the day:    Paula has over 650 dives to her credit.  Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
