Dive 254 Crab Farewell

PT and Spidercrabs

Dear Critters,

Today I dived with my best buddy LP for our final chance to say goodbye to all of the lovely crabs that had survived the annual migration to Rye Pier; they are now headed back out to deeper parts of the bay where they will hibernate under the sand for up to 8 months.

It was also my first ever experience of diving in a drysuit which I borrowed from the lovely Julie Bear. I stayed nice and dry until right towards the end of the 90 minute dive, when I felt water seeping right through and saturating me down to the core! Still, I am inspired to keep experimenting with drysuits now that winter has arrived (11 degrees Celcius is brrrrrrrr!), and I will trial two more models next weekend (in a drysuit, the water doesn’t seep through onto your skin … unless you are me today :-P)

PT full length with Spidercrabs

Although I still have video from yesterday and today’s dive to edit and share with you, here are my final photos from this year’s migration. I hope you enjoy them. I know a lot of people might think I’m a bit crazy for getting so up-close-and-personal with these critters, but they are gentle little souls who would never hurt a human. I wish them much love and luck on their journey. Maybe we will get to see them again next year πŸ™‚

Love and bubbles,

PT xxx

ps Big tanks to LP for kindly taking the photos that I am in!
