After our short but windy stay at Rossport we made our way out of Broadhaven Bay and a return to the Stags…...a small group of rocky islands not far from Portacloy.

Winds were from the south and swell was still hitting these small islands but we found a small sheltered spot on the north east side. Plenty of the cutest puffins hanging out. Funny looking little lads but always a delight to see.

We set a good anchor, geared up and headed over to the sheltered dive in our little dinghy. A small grapple anchor at the dive site and ready to roll.

Nice Scubapro fins!

Great visibility and a stunning location. This next shot I put a 6 stop ND filter on the lens before putting it on the Aquatica housing. This enabled me to get 2 minute exposures on F11.
I love the surreal nature of the moving seaweed contrasting to the stillness of the rock. Still not 100% happy with the workflow but experimenting as I go.

We headed for Portacloy for some safe anchorage and some quality grub.

Here’s a pic of Ciaran getting stuck into some amazing air dried pork and beef from McGeoughs Connemara Fine Foods.
They gave us enough of this delicious meat to do us for the entire trip. No refrigeration required!!!
Relishes by Caroline Lennon and Buillín Blasta are fast becoming a staple condiment for every meal.

Next day another dive at the stags before a visit to Kid Island. Parsons Rock seen through the gap...

A small piece of seaweed just below the surface.
