Sunday 18th March saw me go down to Portland to do some local, winter diving. First dive was a drift across Balaclava Bay. Well it was supposed to be a drift, but there wasn't a lot of current. There were a lot of scallops though. I got a bagful. Visibility was about 3m except for one patch which I think was caused by other divers on the boat. The sea temperature was 10°C, 2 degrees warmer than the previous weekend in Eastbourne, but it usually gets colder the further east you go at this time of year.
