Gildy - 15th Nov Icon_sunny The sun was out for our trip to Gildy down near Peterborough. Two great dives with the viz realy good - our divers today were Lex, Teresa, Ed and Ian, with shore cover by Emma, Poppy & Sam. Sorry i've no pictures, but i'm sure Ed or Ian will post some for us.

Gildy - 15th Nov Icon_silent Even though it was a great day, I didn't realise it was a PADI instructor examination day at the site! [for the record our trip was pre-arranged on this site back on the 17th August, time stamped entry on dive trips]
Anyway I would like to congratulate Natalie Binks on passing her instructor exams Gildy - 15th Nov Icon_rolleyes . This 18 year old is now just the same as me, a PADI instructor! Despite our ongoing differences, I'm still proud that another one of my former flock have proved that they did learn something from me, once apon a time. Just a pitty I could not shake her hand or tell her how pleased I am for her.

PLEASE do not add further comments on this subject, i'm proberly already in more trouble Gildy - 15th Nov Icon_pirat

Smudge, Ian, Ed, Teresa and I all hit the water today at Guilders.
Shore cover was kindly provided by the lovely Emma, Poppy and Sam.

First time for me diving at Guilders...
2 good dives.... 20.1m - 45 mins, 19.3m - 43 mins. Vis was very good. And the weather was beautiful all day!

Loads of little fish and lots of good wrecks to explore - which is always good for practicing skills! And the pool table was great fun.

I had a bit of a disaster on my first dive when my fin broke as I entered the water (giant stride from the high platform). I continued the dive, but it was a bit of a pain and hard work! The staff at guilders were great and let me test a pair of fins for the second dive. Really glad I tried them before I bough them... as they were very uncomfortable fins (possibley too small)! ... Gonna try a few more fins before I get the cash out! (thanks Teresa!) x

Thanks everyone for a great day, especially to Pappa who coped with the unexpected very well!!!!!
Lexy x

Yes its was a wonderful days diving and it goes without saying but will Thanks to all those who dived and to those on essential shore cover. The vis was the best i've ever seen at gilly but as only my second time it may not count for much, but if you've not dived there before dont rule it out as its a lovely site lets use it more often.......... please.

Various expleatives are now being shouted at the laptop and "fiddlesticks" is not one of them.......

Pappa,

Remember to add a little water if you are drinking whisky that is so strong, not to dilute but it helps with the release of volatiles so that you may appreciate the flavour more. You do deserve a toast, to your success as a teacher, but do not do it for the wrong reasons. You are a success at what you do, why do you think your crew are so loyal to you and that your students all trust trust you so much. Continue the good work and I look forward to our next dive,...

"Slainthe Va",

or as Rabbie penned

May the best you've ever seen
Be the worst you'll ever see;
May a moose ne'er leave yer girnal
Wi' a teardrop in his e'e.
May ye aye keep hale and hearty
Till ye're auld enough tae dee,
May ye aye be just as happy
As I wish ye aye tae be.

Cheers for another good one!!!!!! Oh and by the way before I get you in trouble a girnal is a meal/food chest, and 'Moose' is not Mrs Squirrel but a Mousse!!!!

Hi Lex, sorry Pinky,

Glad you had a good day. Wish I had been there but I was a rugby mum today, Toms team thrashed the other side, Rishworth, over 50-0. Tim was being a hockey dad in Harrogate, they won too. One day I will get to Gildy.
