On Monday 3rd May Alex, Sarah A, Emily, James and Jessica headed to Wraysbury Diving Lake for the first ‘warm’ up dive of the year.
It was a good opportunity to dust off kit and check everything was in full working order. Sarah got to try out her brand-new dry suit, and Alex his new pony. It was also great to see some friendly diving faces in real life as opposed to on Zoom!
The water temperature was a balmy 11 degrees, and we spent around 45 minutes exploring the bottom of the lake. Not too much wildlife spotted, but we did see a couple of very large pike and many crayfish.
Despite the typically poor Wraysbury vis, we actually managed to find more sunken objects than we have on previous visits: a submarine, multiple boats, set of traffic lights, part of a Jet2.com fuselage (toilet cubical still intact) and a large plastic Ganesh?!
After the dive, it was back on dry land to tuck into a tin of infamous Veys’ ginger flapjacks, and some hot bacon butties. Both well earned!
Thanks very much to Alex for organising, it was a fun morning and we all look forward to more water time in 2021!
