it's our last night tonight! I've had an amazing holiday. Fantastic diving, great company, fabulous weather, good food .... what more could I have asked for?

Cant wait for the next trip to Grenada - I'll definitely be on it!

A little over half way thru an amazing week saying goodbye to our British friends and fellow trip mates! I am looking forward to a UK contingency and a trip across the pond soon! We'll let THEM show us how to have a great time in their backyard whether pubbing in our new 'one pub pub crawls' or diving in the Red Sea!

We had a wonderful day today diving yet again on two more 'old growth' wrecks and artifacts abounded. Tiles from the first and second class pools on the Bianca C as well as a porthole from the San Juan were part of the booty today!

Can't wait to return tomorrow but we'll be very sad as our new friends, members and the new UK Contingency will not be with us laughing at breakfast, diving with us and enjoying the tremendous diving here in Grenada.

Bayswaterbabe will be missed especialy on the wrecks. She is well on her way to being our UK version of the WreckWench. She will earn an appropriate 'wreck' title soon I am sure. SD will have great representation in the UK as soon as Bayswaterbabe, NorthSeaDiver and allnightsimon get things rolling. I will be looking forward to the pub crawl and seeing our new friends soon. :angel2:

I call this shot the "Leap of Faith". Notice the slung 80s? The crew was amused by 'em...

I can't believe we are sitting at breakfast in an open restaurant looking at two islands, the ocean and the lagoon!

We will be heading to the dive shop around the corner shortly to dive our last day here in Paradise. It has been an absolutely wonderful trip and we'll have a helluva trip report for you soon! -ww

Heheheh... Awwww geeeze...

It's a tough situation to be sure,
But you'll manage through it somehow...

It's the after-dive Cocktails that really make it rough..

Dive safe eh??

Thanks Paul,
You and crew made my first trip to Grenada fantastic. I will return and dive with you again. The boats were tops and the diving even better. I cant say enough for you and the rest of Aquanauts Grenada for the best wrecks I have been on in a while. I also want to thank you for retrieving my nuts and returning them to me. I trust you will understand however grateful I am for your assistance, Lilly AKA bayswaterbabe gets the job as official nut lightener for me. :birthday:

Paul you are one of my favorite divemasters bar none EVEN if you did throw me under the bus this week! :banghead:

Fortunately you recovered quite nicely and I'm thrilled you've joined our merry band of fun bubble makers! I will upgrade you to Professional Membership shortly and I look forward to having you as one of our official staff located in Grenada!

Bill aka OTWDiver was right...the dive op is fantastic...the DM's EVEN BETTER!!! And of course the diving is awesome! Looks like we'll be en mass in June...I can't wait!

As soon as I get caught up a bit I'll get a full trip report posted! -ww

Hi to everybody I met in Grenada, well I've returned to sunny England and can only say I was drier while diving Bianca C!!!!! Had a great time with my new dive buddies not least AllNight Simon who is prone to 'waxing lyrical' but don't worry your secrets safe with us (not). Bit disapointed with OTWdiver who was only prepared to allow the girls to tighten his nuts!!!! Will definatley be going diving with u again what a great crowd
bye for now

Just a quick note to echo my trusted ( not ) friend ( North Sea Diver ), have now been back in wet England just over a very long week, and still trying to get my ( waxed ) feet under one's table.

Had a great time both above and below the surface, very much looking forward to catching up with you lovely but dysfunctual people in the future.

Hope you nuts don't come off in the near future OTWdiver, my suggestion would be to keep a spare pare ready just in case, but forget to keep them well greased..........

Once again, many thanks, happy days, now i'm off for a rub down...........
Its all about the diving! Yeah even my name!
