Here's a great film that my brother Alan took of us diving at Tobermory in the Great Lakes of Canada last week. Alan is a professional film maker and took this in 4K, so the quality of his footage is exceptional - in fact we're planning to make a documentary on the shipwrecks there. Diving in these waters has always been a big stimulus to my novels, not only the wrecks but also exploring caves (as you can see in this film) and deep waters. It's great for me to see Molly doing so well in her first proper wreck diving expedition!

Molly doing her safety stop on the way up from the Caroline Rose. The water was a bit warmer here at 6 m depth!
Molly at the stern of the Caroline Rose, looking at the screw and rudder. Originally built in 1940 as a fishing schooner in Nova Scotia, she worked the Grand Banks off Newfoundland before coming to the Great Lakes, and now lies in about 16 m depth - just below the thermocline, as Molly and I discovered in our wetsuits!

All kitted up and ready to go on the wreck of the Caroline Rose off the Bruce Peninsula in Georgian Bay, Lake Huron. Many thanks to Captain Tom and everyone at Divers Den for helping to make this such a great dive!
