Weybourne August 04


Our second jaunt to Weybourne and another good crowd. The weather was glorious and even managed a cooling breeze midday to make life more pleasant for those boiling in their drysuits. We'd extend our thanks to the local divers who were super helpful and hope they enjoyed their diving as much as we did. As usual click on the first small picture to start and then 'next preview' to work through them all. The pictures with names rather than numbers are David's.

We started our weekend with a night out at Newmarket
