Re: RIP Chris and Patrick - Fort Lauderdale friends die cave-diving in underwater spr

Every death is a terrible thing and a loss for many. Eagles nest is a spectacular dive following the pond floor slopping down to a pocket in the bottom is a tube. You slide down and thru the tube coming out in the top of a ballroom that is so large your light won't reach the other side. as you continue down you level off above the debris cone from here you can go up stream or down stream and your journey from the cavern zone in to the cave you head down to the bottom of the cone at just less than 130 feet. From here the cave goes as deep as 292' with most of its depth 220'-250'
the passageways have overhangs, and corners visibilities to 200'
My first cavern dive we got a glimpse in to cave.
The siren call to look around the next corner and go deeper in the cave you feel like the first person to ever been in that spot, for me the pull to see around the next corner is like there must be a pot of gold just around the next corner.
To those that have passed enjoying our great sport you are missed we mourn your passing.
Dave
