First topic message reminder :

As leader of latest venture to warmer waters, i thought i better start the ball rolling.

First day: 2 dives at Cirkewwa Point.

The first was been led, not by me but by our very own Jason! The plan was to go to the wreck of the Rozi. But a short time later we ended up on the P29!!!

Anyway here are few of my pictures of the First Dive.....

Also known as a flying gurnard, or a helmet gurnard. I think it is more precisely known as "Dactylopterus volitans", as the oriental sub-species has a more spine like wing.

Do we get badges???

T'internet is a wonderful thing.........

By the way, you are probably aware but the folks that dived the plane at Capernwray on the first day are in the 'DIVER' magazine. It has the picture of you all looking through the portholes.

Hope you manage to get back OK. At least some flights are now happening. Our flight out to St. Lucia is still looking unlikely. Scheduled for very early Friday morning from Gatwick....

Take care and catch up soon.

Allright for some!!!!!!

:(ruber): :swim: :(ruber):

If you need anything doing/sorting let me know..

But i probably won't have any transport, due to Em's car having to be scraped, and some kind soul running into the back of me and doing 1,800 quids worth of damage, :(swiss): :misc 02:

So probably a write off


I LOVE IT ...............

Enjoy it while you can...

I can't believe it. You can predict rainfall within a 7 minute time slot and you knew a volcano would erupt in Iceland knowing that all flights in and out of the uk would be cancelled. Therefore planning in full knowledge that you would be actually diving in Malta for 2 weeks and not 1.
Sir Smudge I take my hat off to you your a genius.

Sleep Very Happy Very Happy

No I couldnt get, I rang Rob as I didnt get away from site until 12 pm so had to postpone.
I will see if anyone is still going to Capers on Sunday as it looks like you all will be lucky enough to continue the fun in Malta.

If I can be of assistance with anything any of you need sorting over here please let me know quite happy to help out.

Andy

well you should have come with us - everyone had the chance, now yep we're stuck in the sunshine and the clear blue med. The drinks at the bar cost less than 10 for 5 drinks!

Yes I can predict the rain and un-pronouncible volcanos causing world devastation - but i still can't get the lottery right!

Anyway, I hear iceland as done more about illegal imigrants than the goverment as ever done!

Today things got back to normal - well for us stuck in Malta
As we are now here for a week at least, we thought we would just get straight back in the water - and dive

......So here is day 7 of diving taken by me!

Today (thursday) we headed to Valletta to dive two wrecks in the harbour. The first was the Maori and the second was the wreck of the Water Lighter X127 (Coralita). Two great dives, so here are some pictures that I took during the day.

Due to having to stay here another week sadly a change of circumstances, having to watch the pennies and eat at less expensive places, mix in different circles, low budget hotel with pool....





Apart from Smudge who has found himself some great accomodation
