Christmas weekend and dive

Just had a great weekend at Etland House, Preston Patrick, just off junction 36 M6.

The astute amongst you will have noted that Capernwray is off junction 35 so very convenient for our Saturday dip.

Foreboding weather forecasts all week of snow and ice but in the event travelling up on Friday 14th December was easy going. The surface conditions on Saturday were not warm but nothing like the predicted -6 degree feeling with wind chill or freezing hail. It was more pleasant in the water at 8 degrees. We did have a number of wimps duck out of the diving but 4 hardy souls did have enjoyable dives in peace and quiet.

We felt well deserving of our Christmas dinner on Saturday evening.

And up for a walk in the morning sunshine on Sunday before brunch. A gentle stroll round Grange-over-Sands front in the afternoon walked off the stuffed feeling.

An excellent weekend despite being diving lite and food heavy !

St Abbs Sept 28/29/30th 2018

Just got back from a great long weekend. Dived Bass Rock, Isle of May, Ebb Carr, Black Carr, Anenome Gully and Wuddy Rocks swim through toward Black Carr with Paul Crowe on Shore Diver.

Lovely weather, great group, Paul and Rachel looked after us well as usual.

Visibility iffy for the first dive but improved through the days and was good for the final day.

Pembroke September 2018

5 days in the furthest corner of Wales. A spot not many of us had dived before. Difficult to get a group, difficult to get a date with good tides and the weather is always going to be questionable.

We got there and dived everyday and had sunshine 4 out of 5 days. Fabulous !
