SMS 16: Recurrents A.M. Training + Dive Team Check Out/Training

Dateline: Thursday morning, July 7, 2016, Santa Monica Lifeguard HQ and SMS Tower #16... we showed up for an a.m. workout to find a handful of Ocean Lifeguards preparing to train (swimming, running, paddling, plus dory lessons) out front of SMS Tower #16, as well as the Dive Team preparing for a check out dive... fortunately, I had my camera with me..... so for those of you who like to be kept in the loop, here is some more entertainment for you, courtesy of "County Recurrent".

and then we headed back to SMHQ and we came across OL Stephen Leon along the way on his way out to his shift today at SMS Tower #16...

After showering and changing into my business attire, I then realized I left my fins at Tower #16... so out I went to collect them.....  OL Stephen Leon had by this time opened Tower #16 and was watching the water like a hawk....

... and then we noticed the Baywatch returning with the dive team..... I forgot my fins but not my camera!... just sayin'.....

And then we really headed out and went to work at the office....

Have Fins Will Travel.....
