On the second try we spotted a car.

Oh dear, long time since the last posting. I refuse to give up, although i haven’t been able to diving as much as i hoped. I guess that comes with being a parent 🙂

Yesterday it was finally time to go diving again, so I joined some friends from the dive centerwho were about to try out a new (at least to us) dive spot. An old quarry in Kolsva, where they used to mine for feldspar between 1894 and 1954.

Since this place is basically a round hole filled with water, with sometimes poor visibilty, navigation was a bit tricky. We really had to be careful not to swim in under cliff overhangs or into other openings/tunnels in the rock.

The dive site description was not very detailed and on our first dive we didnt see anything intersting at all!

Luckily, some locals arrived during our surface interval and gave us a better description of where to find the interesting stuff. So after downing a couåle of grilled burgers, we entered again and did much better. This time we found a couple of ditched cars, which gave a chance to hone my underwater modeling skills. I’ll leave it to you to judge if you think I might have a future in it 🙂

All in all we had a great day, and probably will come back another time!
