- 6 x light sticks (chemically powered, glow brightly for hours)
- 3 x dive-rated torches
- 1 x ordinary torches (to be home-sealed in a plastic bag, nice big beam but the sea might kill it)
- 90ft strong rope that floats (bought for the Iceland trip, but never used)
- 1 x whistle
- Elastics (for attaching light sticks firmly to our persons)
So… should be interesting, yes? The rope (white, gorgeous, belongs in a marina somewhere) is mainly for caves, which we’ve heard are there for the finding – might be a useful way to be certain of the route out of the caves if we need to exit in a hurry (can’t find air). Why the light sticks?
- They should help us stick together (where best to attach them?)
- If a torch goes at an awkward moment, they might suffice as an emergency light
- A good way to mark our entry point, so we can find our way out of the water again
- Fish lure?
- They look really, really cool
Unanswered questions: Exactly how safe is this? Might we find the darkness and the deep a little too exciting? Will the lights scare the fish – or attract just a little too much attention from certain species? Adventures to be had? Oh yes…
