Re: My Brush with Drowning.

Jeez, I literally read half the story before realizing that Cobalt06 is my spearing buddy and I was the spearing buddy referenced!
I screwed up that day and disregarded some of the rules I've made up. We don't dive the open ocean beaches in late afternoon, only the ones within the bay. The current and waves tend to get too gnarly on the ocean side at that time. That day, lack of viz in the bay forced us out to the Slot (open ocean beach) in search of blue water. We should have just packed it in and went home.
I'm glad my friend was ok. We've had some close calls at that spot and others but this was the worst.
Definitely a wake up call and reminder to use my head before getting in the water.
