Sunstar goes to the Farnes Sept 2001



Despite a frightening attrition rate which meant only two of the original party made the final trip we dived the Farnes. I was glad to have made up the party as the vis was great 10-15m and the seals were fantastically friendly. A great trip made better by making new friends - Allen and Nicky joined us and even got dragged along on our visit to Dunstanbrugh castle.

Mark and Craig plan something as Karen scoffs the last of Craigs enormous supply of food.

Loads of divers gathered on the harbour wall. No one seemed to have much doubt that they'd dive.

Raj is delighted as he rescues his boots from the boat before we head home. A detour which cost him a round of ice creams.
