For the August bank holiday weekend we headed down to Falmouth, for what we hoped would be 3 days of diving from the boat Wave Chieftain, skippered by Nigel, launching from Mylor. All weekend we were entertained by a family of birds who had nested on the Wave Chieftain, the chicks coming out to sea with us, and mum and dad greeting us each time we returned to harbour.
Saturday's diving was good enough - Hera wreck and Lath Rock, visibility not too special.
On Sunday we were out to sea (at the SS Carmarthen wreck site) and almost fully kitted up when most of us noticed our air had a strange odour - the smell of freshly manufactured garden hoses, kind of. We'd got these fills the previous afternoon from Seaways near Penryn. Needless to say we didn't dive that day.
On the Monday we dived the SS Carmarthen and the Volnay.
We stayed in various B&Bs in and around Falmouth. We had a decent feed at the historic Pandora Inn on one night.
