Yesterday I completed my first ever bid for consultancy work (previous work has come through less formal methods!). Hope it works out….
Yesterday we braved the cold waters of Vobster quarry for our first two open water dives. I had expected to feel really cold, but although I could hardly move in three layers of wet suit, the trickle of 10 degree C water down my back quickly warmed.
It was more fun than I imagined. I had never thought of quarries as pretty places, but full of water and with a caravan selling burgers and tea they can be very attractive.
The training included compass work, coping with air running out (simulated not real), clearing a diving mask of water, and so on. The pay-off was swimming around with the trout and gazing at the wreck of an aeroplane!
