Divers Update

Its been a while since the last blog, no I've not been lazy, quite the opposite, its been so busy here lately that we've not had much time to do anything. The staff are all a size smaller because yes diving comes before eating for us, we all do manage to get a beer at the end of the day so don't worry!In the last few weeks we have lost two vital members of staff, no they didn't suffer a bad case of the bends they had to return home to start preparing for university. Now, from one of them i heard the preparation involved alot of karioke and water pistols, guess thats a good education these days! First to go was Dorianne, our bubbly dutch instructor who kept people laughing under the water with her tricks of the trade and the place is definitely alot quieter without her, and a personal touch i've lots my dive buddy, until the next adventure Dor! Then it was Ben to go, also known as flowerpot, who very slowly but thouroughly became DSD king introducing over 150 people for their first dive this summer. Looking forward to their return next summer to start all over again.
Meanwhile back at the shop we are starting to feel the summer holidays come to a close, the language students are saying their goodbyes and heading back to school in their own countries. The last minute holiday makers are getting less and less but we're still plodding along and then comes the big diving groups. No rest for the wiked divers. We're anticipating big groups to come over from the UK this autumn when the water is still up at around 26-27 degrees and the visability gets a bit clearer. Big difference from some of the murky quarries in England and perfect for divers to experience the clearer water and start to advance, take some pictures, see some wrecks, so we know they're looking forward to their visit.
