HARDY DIVERS SCULPT A SILENT WORLD

A man wades into the ocean with a wheelbarrow full of concrete blocks ... sounds like a joke setup, right? Except no funny stuff's going down in Edmonds, just the work crew at the city's underwater park.

For 31 years, Bruce Higgins has anchored a fluid collection of volunteers, the type that shun meetings and "just get out there already." The team has sculpted a sandy patch of Puget Sound, once known for scuba fatalities, into an urban dive destination.
Check out my full story, with Scott Boyd's photos, in the July 17th issue of the "Seattle Post-Intelligencer".

  2. Thanks, Sal.

    I reckon more women are diving now ... at least in the NW... But yes, we still need more female scuba stories!
