Two great dives at Stoney today!

Dive one - Some of us headed down to the hydro box... I got 35.7m, 32 mins dive. The vis was really really good!!!! (The best I've seen it at Stoney). Although it was very dark from around 10m. Had a really good dive - much more relaxed than my last visit to the hydro box!!!!

Dive two - The plan was to dive the wrecks. Our wonderful host/guide found the Staingarth (at the bottom of the shot line) - which we had fun exploring, also found several cars and explored the "cave" underneath the reasturant looking for cray fish. Our guide made the decision to save the new wreck until another day! LOL.

I got 20.7m, 42 mins.
I felt the cold on this second dive and my hands were a nice shade of blue when I was attempting to remove my dry suit!!!!
Lots of fish to see on both dives.

Was nice to see everyone. Thank you to the Kays, the Nobbs, Smudge and Zoe - for a lovely day out!

Also big thanks to Mrs Frog and Teresa for letting me borrow their fins - so I could try them out before I invest in some replacements! And thanks for driving smudge!

Hope to dive with you all again real soon! Lexy x x

Like Pinky we had a great 2 dives although a little different as the kids were depth limited, but they had a great time. Nice to dive the Staingarth with everyone together, and a different direction through it. Notice the big fishes in the wreck as we came out by the ladder?

I have been to the new wreck once with Smudge but not from the Stanegarth, maybe thats the way to get to it next time.

Congrats to Mr and Mrs Hobb Nobbs on finishing their AOW.

Hope Zoe has warmed up

The Kays

Good photographs miss kay. I like the diver in some of them Looks we could have some new award winning photographers to join the ranks of:
"Me - Squirrel - Emma - Mrs Frog - Mr Frog"
Videos are easy, first you need to upload them onto a player, i.e. You Tube. Then take the code off you tube and embed it in your post.

Thanks Smudge, Pinky, The KAyes and of course the amazing mr Hob Nob.

two really good dives, brilliant viz although a leaky suit made me soggy and cold!

Being the safety nut that i am i just want to thank those who have taken the time to look after me, understand my concerns, hold my hand and give me the kick up the jacksie when it was needed. Im not naming names but you know who you are......and you are missed dearly......ribbit!

This has seemed a lifetime, due to restraints of kids and cash vs diving every weekend. so we will have our rescue inabout 5 years time!!!!!!!

pa whers the piccy you took of me.... dont worry i know i look like a pug in a hood...i need to show my dad!!!

thanks guys good day in and out of the water, and home for Spiderman 3 hoooray!!!!!!

See you all soon

Em x

ps Sammy i can see potential in them there piccies...really good X
