Me and Sue went again on thursday the 12th, the sea was flat calm in and out of the harbour, just slightly choppy at Lulworth cove.
Got there around 11am, left Lulworth after a picnic around 12 and went through Durdle door which was great fun
was a bit wary of depth so took it steady but as the water was still fairly high it was not a problem.
Getting a chart plotter/fishfinder installed soon so I don't have to guess and hope for the best with depths.
I hope to get out on my own next week and do a spot of fishing.
