This weekend is the bicentennial of the British attack on Havre de Grace, MD in the War of 1812. The town is having a major reenactment this weekend and to kick things off the tall ship SULTANA sailed into town today…
Well it has been a long time but finally managed to get back into the Atlantic this past Saturday for the Independence II’s first trip of the season. Headed out to the STOLT DAGALI in flat seas which was a welcome treat for my legs which have grown a little too accustomed to landlubbing as of late. Visibility on the wreck ranged from 10-20 feet and temperature readings of 43-45F were reported. Nice to get back in the water and get the 2013 season going!
Looking for some new underwater home decor? You are in luck because I have a limited run of some awesome gallery wrap canvas prints hot off the presses! These 16×24″ canvasses are professionally printed and stretched around a 1.5″ frame and come ready to hang for $150.
These photos don’t really do them justice so I’d recommend checking them out in person… I will be at the Tom’s River SCUBA flea market next Sunday 2/17 at the Independence table. On 3/2 I will be presenting photos on New Jersey wreck diving at the Scuba Connection in Hillsborough, NJ. Capt. Dan Bartone will also be on hand to present some artifacts and to discuss New Jersey wreck diving, should be a fun event! And finally, they can be purchased and picked up at Beneath the Sea 3/22-23. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook.
Troy Springs State Park sits in an idyllic setting on the banks of the Suwannee River near Branford, FL. The spring has a beautiful cavern that is pretty much an open water site with depths to ~60 feet. At the end of the spring run are the remains of the Civil War era steamship MADISON. Cavern dive and wreck in 1!
