    Thanks, Iris! That's the old road bed down into the quarry (the beach entrance). It's the one part of the quarry with consistently good visibility and very good light.

    Every time this thread comes up I kinda wish we could change the title. I think Tradd has overcome her gag reflex!
    I'm so glad you've stuck with this and its become such an important hobby and part of your life.

    What is the story with that hand sculpture in your "good horizontal" photo? Is that one of those garden hand chairs and how did it end up there? I want one!

    Have you had some canvas prints made of some of your shipwreck dive photos? So interesting and would make good apartment art.

    Tradd, if you want to change the title, let me know, I can do it with moderator powers. I think it is a good idea, too.

    Yes, please do. Make it something like “My Diving Experiences.”

    Thanks! Kept meaning to ask this and always forgot!

    There are all sorts of things from old boats, a fire trunk, dump truck, to many little statues and such in the quarry for divers to look at. There are a number of these hand chairs!

    My trip to northern Lake Huron/Alpena, MI (the one that got cancelled last year due to bad weather) finally happened this weekend. More later, but here's a really neat video I shot. It's on the Grecian wreck, a steel freighter that went down in 1906 on its way to Detroit to get repairs. Empty, no lives lost. Her middle has collapsed, giving access to her innards. I didn't go inside, but I did swim through some open deck framing on another wreck. This was my deepest dive yet at 93ft. It was 48F. Bottom was at 100-106'.
