    I looked at that site after your recommendation. Nothing original. No posts looking for buddies.
    Just links to other better sites. A complete dead end.

    Spiny at Scapa

    Had a lovely trip up in Scapa a couple of weeks ago on Karin.

    Sighted a crawfish/spiny lobster.

    I know they are repopulating the south coast but was surprised to see one so far North.

    Every dive is unique. Waves , light, current, tide, vis and so on. If you return to a favourite site after a month or so the wild life also has gone through its seasonal changes. If you get your eye...

    On Zeus out of Southwold. Been doing that for past 18 years.

    I only went for 3days last year, wasn't strong enough to climb the ladder nursing an arm injury (slipped over in the paddling pool).

    I didn't realise "rucking" was a recognised activity.

    Makes me walking down to Aldi and carrying back a load of cheap beer seem much more worthy.
