First jump was on the Rondo which is an interesting wreck in that is sits nearly vertical in the water, stern up and the rudder at about 8m, and a nice swim through at about 18m which can take you out of one of the holds at 32m.

We were due to head to Tobermory to cool our heels and have lunch, but some silly woman from the other group who was diving in a wetsuit was complaining she was cold and wanted to go and get her other wetsuit from the dive centre. Which was a long way away. So the boat headed back. This was the same women that said that she never gets cold on dives in a wetsuit.
Here's a tip for you love, wear the proper bloody exposure protection you stupid moo, then we wouldn't have to waste 4 hours at the surface to ferry you around because you're an idiot! I really have no patience for morons and less patience for those with little common sense. Right, rant over.

As it's still in good nick, there's plenty of opportunity for penetration and getting right in amongst it. But don't forge to have a little mooch around a little of the wreck at the debris scattered around, particularly amidships off starboard side, where you'll find plenty of marine life like a nice conger we found in one of the old steam pipes.

Not difficult to get Gordon talking as he has quite a lot to say about every subject under the sun. And his food's not bad either. We settle in for fresh made breaded haddock for starters with spagetthi bolognese for the main attraction with the girls hitting the wine whilst I hit the sheets and try and reclaim some sleep. After all, tomorrow is another day.

With a nice little potter at 15m, I drifted off into the current back onto the wreck and drifted up the shot. By this time, the current had picked up something fearsome and divers were scattered all up and down the coastline of Mull. All good fun.
Thankfully today, we didn't have to spend waste time motoring back for a stupid wetsuit and we hit Oban for a slice of sunshine and bite of lunch. The kayakers where out, the tall ships were in and the tourists where milling around in abundance.
