Tough conditions

Jim D’ annunzio and his crew have been coming scalloping with me for years now. This year the weather was a little nasty and we ended up sitting at Twin Rivers Marina for a couple hours waiting for things to blow over. The weather was not ideal for a day of snorkeling but everyone was up to giving
