Change of plan

We woke up to find it was foggy. Very foggy. So we scrubbed the plan and went diving at Sligneach Mor in Loch Sunart instead. This is an island heavily populated by seals, who haul out at low water. After a dive on a 30m wall, we went snorkelling with the somewhat shy seals. Only a couple of us caught underwater glimpses, the rest having to make do with watching them watching us.

In the afternoon, we dived the Hispania, one of the two or three most well known wrecks in the Sound of Mull. Someone has obviously been feeding the wrasse. They swim alongside you and nibble your fingers, hoping for some morsels. They make good company, but it is bizarre watching fish be friendly rather than swim away when you get too close.
