Bl00dy Hell!!!! Wished I had had some planned. Just got back from a weekend staying down in Selsey with friends. Today was flat calm, not a spot of wind (apart from the self generated stuff) and glorious sunshine.

Would have been a fantsatic day to be out on the sea, but did I have my kit, had I organised anything - had I bu99ery!!

Yes, another day at sea
What a glorious day, clear blue sky, lots of sun, and a flat calm sea, what else to do except go diving.
We dived The City of Waterford 30mtrs today, only 2mtrs vis but very acceptable. Sea temp was a very cool 8 degrees & yesterday we dived the Bessell an 1880's sailing ship in 65mtrs, Deep, Dark, Very Cold but what a spidge fest

Not so much as Sunday but an excellent dive at St Catherines on Loch Fyne on Saturday.

By the time we arrived at the site it was a beautiful winters day, bloody freezing but bright sunshine and water flat calm with thick layer of frost on the shore. Just past high tide so the vis was a decent 5-8 meters. Switched on computer and it read an air temperature of about  -1 degree. Got kited up and headed for the water. Surface water temp was about 2 degrees but warmed up to about 10 degrees at Max depth (21.8m). Plenty of life (Squat Lobsters, Edible Crabs, a couple of huge Starfish, Lovely bright purple Sea Urchins and lots of Prawns (I think, not exactly "up" on these things). On surfacing were met by about 15 - 20 faces (Edinburgh club up for a training dive (Hello to anyone who was there)) After a not too cold SI, changed cylinders and did a second dive. This time not so much life (a few Scallops) and vis had deteriorated a bit.

This was dive 52 and 53 and I have just finished my log book. I need to either buy a new one or knock one up in Word. (If anybody has already done this then please feel free to pass this on). Returned home by the Dunoon ferry and some lovely views of this part of West Central Scotland.

Thanks,
/Colin

Beautiful day in Plymouth.  Vis not good - about 1 to 2m, but good enough.  And some scallops too... ;-)
It's going to be shite viz until they finish dredging Millbay pit.
 I thoroughly enjoyed it, plenty of people turned up to dive because of the weather being good for a change. I din't see anyone elses torch light considering it was like Piccadilly circus down there.

Congratulations - can we assume there will be a YD stag weekend and YD reception.... or at least a YD gig at Swanage to commemorate your engagement?
