Back to diving! First day out in ages with DEEP BLUE PIRATES. Up to Eyemouth in thick fog after a week of easterly, southerly AND northerly winds, so not encouraging. But in the end things were pretty good, with vis reported up to 10m and some pretty scenery underwater.
First dive was anemone gully, and although there wasn’t a huge amount to see, it was a pleasant dive despite the excessive surge. This is a nudibranch, Tritonia hombergi.
While swimming along a reef, I spotted this nudibranch, Coryphella lineata. 😍 Once I got home and looked at the photos, I realised I was disturbing TWO nudibranch making sweet, sweet lurve. 👩❤️💋👩
Nudibranch spooning alongside a featherstar. Aaaah.
New game: spot the spider crab.
Common sunstar. Not many photos today as a) not much around and b) the surge was moving me off the subject after my shutter press while my camera delayed. 😡
A few of the pirates onboard today. Thanks to Jill for the photo. Overall a nice day out, would go again. 😆 (Deep irony on this comment, as this was to be my last dive before medical issues stopped me diving)
