Dancing ledge snorkelling Mon 6 Aug 2018

Managed to get the RIB round to Dancing ledge and St Albans head on Monday - always wanted to get there and swim in the caves . Took a very experienced diver mate who was also keen . Not sure what his gopro will come out like , but amazing ! Lots of big wrasse , a big Bass & super clear water and tunnels to swim through :) Sorry no better pics at the moment - but I do have better idea of the sea floor for boating in the caves now :)

Not sure who set the dinghy racing course across the end of the slipway in Poole - but not the smartest move & 'interesting' getting across them all !

Not ashore as such. The odd scramble on a rock. Yep.. the pool is still there... story was it blown out by the quarrymen (not the band) to keep cool when working in the summer.. it's not going anywhere! It's also alot colder than the sea.. the rock seems to suck heat out of it:(
