Last weekend I finally gathered up a 45-box gallery order for my outlet in the tourist town of Mendocino on the ocean in northern California.

It's about a three and a half hour drive one-way.

I make a huge deposit of work there every late spring.

This year I decided to add some fun to the trip and asked a friend to go abalone diving as well. I took a few kayaks and after dropping off the pots we hit the water for some free-diving for snails.

The ocean was great with about 25-foot visibility and we quickly got our limit of three abs each.

Besides being done for a year with pots for this gallery I got to be in the ocean and bring home dinner.

Now all the work has been done and I just have to wait for the checks each month as it is a consignment outlet, which I have had for many years and requires much trust.

Very envious. I've wanted to try abalone diving off Vancouver Island (where I sometimes sea kayak)...but my trips have generally coincided with a red tide...

I've tried it a couple times... luscious.

Have they recovered enough down there that you can find them easily enough?
