At the weekend we took a trip out the the Nasteran and Dara. The weather had been a bit breezy for a few days previously and although it had calmed down by Friday, the effect on visibility was severely detrimental. It was like pea soup down there and we soon gave up on the Nasteran and headed for the Dara. This wasn’t much better but we managed to get a dive in nonetheless. Mike Anthony and Geoff did a bit of net cutting before a bit of underwater miscommunication resulted in them coming up separately and giving us a fright. No harm done in the end but food for thought.
On Saturday we organised a working party as a result of which the equipment room is now tidied up, the small boat trailer mudguards are re-attached, the equipment racks are fixed back to the wall and the place has had a bit of a general spruce up. The labourers were me, Geoff, Mike Anthony and Mike Dalton.
Finally, after Trafalgar Day, came Napoleon’s revenge. The colour scheme wasn’t planned I swear.
