I'm having trouble getting on the Babbacombe webcam, does anyone know if it's offline or am I having trouble with my PC again?
Am planning to visit and do a couple of dives tomorrow afternoon but don't really want a wasted journey.

There was a bloke in there last time I was there (which was last July, with Turbie and Spacehopper) but he seemed fairly cheerful and didn't tell me his name! :)
drives (or used to drive) a old beaten up peugeot estate, always in shorts, sandals and shirt. dead scruffy looking - wild hair and glasses. Lovely bloke - he really is.

Thats what I was trying to find out, for tomorrow. I think I'll try phoning the cafe or divers down in the morning to make sure the wind hasn't turned and made it a no go.
I really want to dive in the sea and this is my only chance for a couple of weeks.

Wayne (The cafe owner) is a top man, give them a ring. But basically if the winds are easterly, forget it.

No problem, I'll be phoning the cafe around 11am if it's not on I'm open to suggestions, never dived Brixam but if anyone has any info on it that would be helpful. Thurlstone is usually a good bet if Babbacombe is blown out but it's another 1/2 to 3/4 hour down the road for me.
I welcome suggestions.

Hope Cove is a lovely dive and not too far from Babbacombe. It's facing the other way, so if Babbacombe isn't diveable, Hope Cove usually is.

Website says it is best dived 2hrs either side of high tide, however high tide is at 7.
Which would mean me having to get up about 3am! :-o not a chance!

lol, maybe another day
