DSRV-2 Avalon is a Mystic class Deep Submergence Rescue Vehicle that is rated to dive up to 5000 feet (1500 m). The submarine was acquired in response to the loss of the USS Thresher so that the Navy would have a way to rescue submarine crews trapped far beneath the ocean surface.

Avalon was launched in 1971. The submarine, intended to be air transportable, was 50 feet (15 m) long, 8 feet (2.4 m) in diameter, and weighed 37 tons. The sub was capable of descending to 5,000 feet (1,500 m) below the surface and could carry 24 passengers at a time in addition to its crew. The sub was stationed at North Island Naval Station in San Diego and was never required to conduct an actual rescue operation. Avalon was decommissioned in 2000. The submarine may be donated to the Naval Undersea Museum.

Seals congregate on bay structure which was probably built for them; I cannot imagine what attracts them to use it, but it works.

Our favorite album of ever - brought back memories of one of our favorite places - #9 with Lea and the lavender should be in one of America's favorite magazines (beautiful) and of course, Dale loves the method of serving martinis in jars and likewise loves the martinis. Every photo in this album is exceptional - what a photographer!!!!
