Saturday White Star Quarry Diving

Today was a big day for me. It was one year ago today that I had my hernia surgery. I celebrated by making three dives today on a gorgeous sunny hot day and had fun and a great time. Matt was my dive buddy and we had three enjoyable dives.

This is a former limestone quarry and here is the "crusher" which turned big ones into little ones.
Gilboa has its gnome and White Star has Frosty the Snowman
First time that I saw the police car
This was neat. It was a pvc pipe scuba diver. You can put air from your regulator in his tank and it will come out through his regulator.
Here is the Frito Lay delivery truck
And, in case you are curious about what if you have to go to the bathroom underwater . . .
White Star Strange Underwater Cemetery

I had been diving for years have seen many spectacular and extraordinary sights. This was probably the strangest. We came up on an underwater cemetery. I did not know what was going on, so my initial reaction was one of reverence for the graves as I did not know if people were actually buried there. Turns out, there is no one buried there. These are flawed grave stones that were rejected, donated, and put in several months ago.

This was the most unusual one. There is a Harley Davidson Motorcycle at the bottom and a Cadillac logo in the center. The mistake was, the Harley logo was supposed to be in the middle.

White Star Friday Night

As it was a cold and wet summer, I am trying to get in as much diving as I can, so I went to White Star Quarry in Gibsonburg on Friday evening.

I met up with Tim, Kim, and Alex and we had an enjoyable dive.

Put In Bay Saturday

Saturday, we got up early to catch the ferry to Put In Bay.
We went past Cedar Point Amazement ParkWhen you arrive, you rent a golf cart for transportation. Top speed was, maybe, 15 mph. I was flooring it most of the day. There are car and trucks on the island, but not many. However, these little golf carts are everywhere. The weather was superb, too. Could not have been any better.The Island is two miles by four miles and you see this Victory Monument from everywhere on the IslandMost of the day was spent just touring in our golf cart and sight seeingThere are quaint little shops everywhere. The place reminded us of Key West and they refer to this as the Key West of the North. There is a main street like Duval Street with only restaurants and bars. You will see our drive-down on the video.

Michael Jackson sightingTime to head home. End of a long adventurous day.
Kalahari Friday Night

Elaine and I went to Sandusky for a few days as summer ends. We stayed at the Fairfield Inn and next door was Kalahari Resort, so we visited there. Great place for families and young children with its water park, water slides, game room, and miniature golf.

Baby Bunnies

There was a rabbit nest in our front yard. Every night, mother rabbit sat on the nest. These two hopped out this evening.
