Good day had by all...

Well the water temp is finally easing its way back up. A balmy 9 degrees centigrade today. Viz was downright poor though thanks to strong swell for most of the week. 2-4 metres if we were lucky. Still a good dive on Black Carr (never a bad dive on Black Carr as we always say) and a second jump onto Ebb Carr eventually ending up at Cathedral Rock at sunny St Abbs. 

Plenty of wolfish, lobsters edible crabs, nudibranchs everywhere, scorpion fish. Highlight was definately seeing the biggest lumpsucker ever in all my years diving St Abbs. Thing was close to 2 feet long. It was a monster. And a bugger to photograph due to the crap viz and its willingness to hide in the kelp! Mabs was on fire doing spotting duties. I have taught the young padawan well...


Hopefully the viz will pick up for next Saturday and the weather holds. Oh, and Elaine swears she saw a John Dory, but seeing as she never got a picture of it, it doesnt count. Tough luck dear!
