Yet another beautiful day down in Wales. Seems that A55 is getting shorter by the week!

Once again just a small turn out for todays adventures. We did have one dotty Virgin, Will, who couldn't quite get down because of ears. Better luck next time.

Jason and Diane joined together as a team, while Killa, Jack, Will and I made up the second team. A short swim out to the 40m line we started our descent. Unfortunatley as previously said, Will couldn't clear his ears. So the the three of us headed to 40m, with my plan to dive to 75m below them then meet with them at the deco stops.

For me a great dive. 75m on the nose. Fantastic viz even going through the tiunnel at 57m. Met several other divers at between 60 and 75m!!. Continued along to ascend to the crane at 8m. Great Dive - stops well managed, air good. Deco of about 45mins (becasuse i was using air tables). I discovered camera stopped working at 58m, so not many pictures.

Smudge abandoned us again for his 75m dive
So he only managed the one

At last i managed to get to Dotty!!!! Thank god for the new car!!!

The plan was for the first dive was down the 40m shot to the gnome garden, through the tunnel and back to the crane. Jack, will Smudge and myself entered the water but unfortunately Will was unable to clear his ears, so sensibly ended the dive. Jack and myself went down the line to the 40m ledge, where we watch smudge over the edge and beyond!!
The dive went as planned and we did a good 40 min dive. I ended a bit early due to headache.

Following the surface internval and several tablets the headache never shifted so didn't do the 2nd dive . It still was a good day as always at Dotty and when diving here i make sure I never push myself, always go with caution.

Hopefully we can get out here again and take Will down to show him what a good dive site this is.

Good to meet Jason and Diane again and look forward to some diving together.
