That was the thought that ran through my head when i finally worked out Easter was coming up! Unfortunately by that time most people already had plans which meant that it was probably going to be me, myself and I and threesomes can be problematic!
However, to the rescue came Clive and Steve who were equally up for a dive over the weekend sometime.
We decided on Swanage as, despite its distance, its fairly easy to do as you ring up, book a space and then turn up. The weather looked like it could be ok so it was all systems go.
Steve collected me at 3:40 and then we tore off to Clive's to find him loading up the car ready to go, although without any bacon butties.

Around 9:00 we started kitting up and were at the end of the pier ready to load onto the Skua at about 9:15 (yes a little bit early) for our 10:00 trip. We loaded the boat and it ended up with 12 of us, 2 rebreathers and the rest on singles.

We held out for 30 odd minutes and then decided it really wasn't going to improve so headed up. Once on the boat, freezing cold (wind had picked up) and contemplating a drift in similar viz we decided not to do the second dive and just get some lunch.
All told the day was a good laugh and as we all know a day with a dive is better than one without!
