Behind the front – that should be called the back, right?  Sunday morning we were behind the cold front at the Florida Sea Base with the normal conditions; freshened westerly breezes,  dropping temperatures and overcast skies.  But the clouds were gone by noon and we eventually warmed into the upper 70s.  By dinner time the westerly breeze had returned and intensified.

This morning it is 67°, wind N at 14 knots, mostly clear skies.  Our forecasted high is 82° for this afternoon.


Sunday was a very busy check-in day; one Scuba Liveaboard crew, six Scuba Adventure crews, and three Coral Reef Sailing crews.

With one Dive Boat Mate down with an injury, we are short staffed again this week.  Conference Commissioner Laura Kuras (who happens to be a PADI Scuba Instructor and former Scuba Commissioner) and Sailing Commissioner Phillip Ferrier (a PADI Rescue Diver) have both offered to help out some during the week.  And who knows, Scuba Commissioner Captain Alex Bergstedt or I may get the opportunity to go diving this week.
