Nice photo Ian.

Thank you Michael. I have very few moonlight pics, and most of them are rubbish. This one sort of worked almost half a lifetime ago.

Hi Laureen,Thank you for posting my note to you. Since leaving, the experience runs over and over in my mind. I dream about the color of the water, the Blue KooKoo Wrase who I swear followed me to each dive site and the World War I and II ships at the bottom of the North Sea that holds so much mystery. I will hold on to this gift forever and hope that I can find this type of experience again. It has opened a whole new world to me. I was never an avid diver until this experience as I was always a bit timid about it. But now, thanks to the Jedi Mind tricks of my Dive Instructor, I find myself looking up flights to other exotic places to dive and even to go back to Stromness! I have found a new passion. I won't bore anyone but I could write for hours about what I saw and what I did and even just what it is like to be anonymous for 4 days in the north sea. What a life you will have for the next year and I cannot believe you are 70. I would never have guessed when I met you. Keep living and I hope to still be heading on such adventures in 35 years!
