adventures are continuing in South Carolina this month. You have seen
the report from the Santa Fe River and the fossils we found there, the
Cooper produces a different type of material, some is similar, but overall,
it is a whole different world. First, the Cooper is diving in deep black
water with no visibility, where we enjoy great visibility at Ginnie
Springs and the Santa Fe. The Cooper is much deeper than the Santa Fe,
at around 50 feet in some places compared to a max of around 25 feet
in the Santa Fe.
my weekend with Sandy, we headed south on Thursday morning. On the way
we stopped at the Inman Dive shop in South Carolina to get our tanks
filled. This is a cool shop, the owner has some great stuff on display
that he has found, including a Saber Cat skull from Florida.
