PQ at Vintage Dive Meet

Underwater exploration and vintage equipment was regaled March 31 at Weeki Wachee Springs in Florida, and Portage Quarry was represented well for the second annual Dive Into History day.

Vintage dive members of the Vintage Double Hose and their Sand Dog Dive were in full force for the second annual event at Weeki Wachee Springs, made famous by diving mermaids who have entertained crowds for 60 years.
