Both of us had completed our confined water dives (in the swimming pool) and our dry-suit dive,
a few weeks ago, but we just had to wait for the weather to
improve enough so that we could do our open water dives.
The weather here on the north-east of Scotland is very unpredictable and the water is ALWAYS cold, so we always have to dive with dry-suits.
Our good friends Andrew and Fiona have both recently become qualified divers and it will be
lovely to go and dive with them. Here's Andrew on the left below, snorkelling in the pool. On the right, is Colin - one of our PADI diving instructors.
He was teaching some other students when I took this photo !
I've always fancied doing underwater photography so Tim bought me an underwater camera a couple of weeks
ago. The last time we were in the pool, I took it along and just snapped away. We weren't actually Scuba diving - only snorkelling so it wasn't easy to keep still under the water, but the results
are here on this page. Not perfect by any means, but not TOO bad for a first attempt either !
Here's me, the waterbaby !! A mask and snorkel don't really do much for one's
looks, do they ? :o)
Tim - showing off his tattoo underwater ! I love the way the bubbles from his snorkel have come out in the photo.
Last summer, Tim and I also
completed a course and are now qualified Marine Mammal Medics, so now if there are any seals, dolphins or
whales which become stranded near us, we can be called upon to help them.
As our diving and our photography improve, I'll put more
bits and pieces on this page, so keep checking back.
Could I please ask you to take a couple of minutes to sign my guestbook (it's under the list of links below) to let me know who's been visiting ? It's simpicity itself to do and doesn't take long. I really like to hear what you have to say.
