    Fantastic dive on the M2 today. The predicted shite viz , which I expected, didn't happen. A very pleasant 3-5 mtrs with loads of light. Couldn't see the wreck for fish at times. Nice bunch of people on the boat many cups of tea and pasty. Finished of with beer and burger in the pub. Home now for sleepy pops.

    Hit the like because you had a good day, but inside thinking "Barstarrd". Still working on the "new to us" house and probably won't dive until Cyprus in October. But then it's my turn. ;):cool::thumbup:

    We also had a great dive in Lyme Bay; SS Trito was a pleasing dive with masses of light (it was quite sunny) and about 8m viz and we had great day.

    Bit of winter sun booked for February. We're going to Lanzarote again. It's been a few years since we were last there and the kids rated it as one of their favourite holidays. Should get a few dives in while I'm there and I'm sure my youngest will be keen for a try dive or two. Can't wait!

    Two dives in 28 degrees and 15m+ vis. Pity about the absence of fish, tho I did see a Scorpion fish in a swim-through. Started with 4kg and had difficulty getting down, 6kg got me down so quickly that my ears took some time to calm down. Tomorrow, I won't empty my bcd.:whistling: Trip report later.

    Went to the local minor injuries unit to be the first one of the day, so seen very quickly. +1 for NHS.

    Nice to know nothing's broken, just a good old sprained ankle. Now working from home for the rest of the week whilst hobbling around the house.

    You're not kidding. The crawl back over Dinas hill with my twinset would have buggered my knees. Must remember to bring knee pads next time I'm there :nurse:

    Or make better plans? They have trolleys at the marina and the boats have lifts, and provide hot drinks ;)

    And a scooter is no trouble and saves all that finning business.

    ....and there’s something other than rock to look at after all that effort.

    About the only life underground is bacteria. And divers. Strange place.

    Yeah, can't see the appeal. It makes the burden of shucking that sack of scallops from today seem joyful.

    Telling the buddy l mentioned in the other thread that I'd driven all the way to NDAC and then had to drive all the way home again without diving, when in fact I managed two nice dives with @splinter and have a day in the sea with @jps lined up tomorrow.

    Lol. Thanks for a good day, I really enjoyed both dives. Must do it again.

    Have a good day tomorrow.

    I was travelling home from Orkney today and originally planned to stop over half way and carry on tomorrow. What cheered me up is that I managed to push on through and got home all in one day.

    Didn't got to do much on the big wrecks (managed a couple on the Kronprinz) but rewarding

    It's a long old drive, that's for sure. I car shared with Neil Powell and did most of the driving on the way back. On the bright side I got to chose where we stopped for grub. :D
