After a couple of weeks of rain and storms, members of Penrith Divers were happy to see some more settled weather for their bank holiday weekend jaunt to Loch Long. Jo had her first taste of diving in the sea and came out at the end of her day having completed all the exercises needed to be signed off as the club's first SAA Open Water Diver! Just need to get the logo sorted and made into a stamp now for that to be made official :-D.
A slightly traumatic night of midges, burst sleeping bags and new hammocking experiences was relieved by an adventure into the unknown (for us) when the 'Twin Piers' dive site was explored for the second day's activities. Apart from negotiating the scary ladder, this turned out to be a very interesting and successful site - one we'll definitely do again. Congratulations to Jo and thanks all for a lovely weekend
