You know what they say, a change is as good as a rest. So off we set on the morning of the 3rd December in not so clement weather, heading for Vivian Quarry in North Wales. Paul had arranged for us to dive here and that we could also do a night dive as well as the daytime. Most of the group hadn’t dived here before and found out what a spectacular location it’s in.
The main reason we were here though was to do a night dive, with 3 of the group of 6 never having done one before. Everyone was well up for this and after a suitable surface interval and scof break, kitting up started again with torches, backup torches and strobes all being checked and double checked. Before taking the plunge this time, we went over the plan again, placed a lantern at the exit point to help at the end of the dive and in we went. Kev went in first to provide a reference point for the others to decend to and Paul took up the rear guard. Once in positions reveresed and Paul led the dive and from the back, Kev made sure everyone was together and sticking close to their buddies. The really nice thing about Vivian’s small size, is that even if you get lost and find yourself having to surface, you won’t have a long surface swim but it’s still better not to get lost in the 1st place.
Everyone enjoyed the day here at Vivian so thanks to the site for having us, especially out of hours and to Paul for arranging the trip!
