As with any activity there are always things that happen that make you smile or belly laugh and we had a number of those, so we thought we would share a few, but they might get lost in translation... at least it will make us laugh
In water Tea.
Most days our pool timings were 17:00 - 21:00, which meant the dive team were on site at 16:15 on these days we ran two sessions.
Then there were a couple of 15:00 - 21:00, which meant onsite at 14:15 and on those days we ran three sessions.
My motto take the opportunity to eat when you can!
Get me into that wetsuit - it will fit!
Some people found a pool of 29 degrees cold and needed an extra layer, but the spare wetsuit was not quite the right size and assistance was required to get it on.
Nuclear Fallout Shorts - Chernobyl
Some shorts should not be worn by divers, let alone snorkelers with divers underneath them.
On getting out of the pool on one session, Bridget exclaimed... I have just seen things I should not see in a pool to which Rick responded, what you mean you had a case of 'nuclear fallout shorts' at which point we just stood and looked at him... to which he responded very slowly - cher-nob-byl
So why were your pictures cloudy?
The pool clarity at times was just like diving Stoney... for reasons we could not explain.. everyday we started out clear.. we get in... its gets cloudy... we get out.. it clears and so the cycle continued.
Space School would not be the success it is without all of the help and support that is received from the fabulous Dive Rutland Team - Dave A, Bridget, Meryl, Rachel H, Rachel P, Rick and Rob and lets not forget my husband whose help and support, is truly appreciated
To you all - A HUGE THANK YOU
