06:45 saw me at the Whitesands car park in Dumfries just as the sun was coming up. There is the use a club member's small van and a rather large king cab truck. We crammed all our bodies, lunches and gear into these two vehicles and made our merry way up the coast to Ayrshire.
We were hoping to dive near the wreck of the SS Kintyre just at Wemyss Bay. That didn't work out.
It was decided that the sandstone rock into the sea held too large a risk for some of our members. The rocks were pretty greasy. I don't know how we would have made it out of the water after the dive. There were loads of eider ducks bobbing in the water near this site and it looks beautiful. I'd like to go back to this site in a boat. So we followed the plan to the next alternative site.
Portencross Castle. It is a delightful dive site!
I love diving and I love the dive club.
